Multicolor or Mixed

Multi-color Roses

I have placed this category here if you feel that there is no one dominant color in the rose(s).  I have found no information related to a rose with multiple colors. If you know of a website or link,  please share with me, thanks!

Mixed Roses

By mixing rose blooms of different colors purposefully, you can create a bouquet of emotions. For example, a bouquet of red and white roses would mean “I love you intensely and my intentions are honorable”.  A random mix of roses would convey mixed feelings or send a message: “I don’t know what my feelings are yet but I sure do like you enough to send you roses.” ♥

 

Entries

I empower you to give your story or poem life of how the rose or roses touched your life.  What gift have you received? A few pointers:

  • Upon submitting your story please select first by color.
  • I have provided information about the symbolic meanings, this is informational only, your story of a particular color may not be associated with any of the meanings and that’s OK! If there is a connection, hurray!
  • Your submission is not limited to a single rose, it can be inspired by garden, bouquet or trellis.

As you submit your story/poem it will not appear immediately. All post are moderated for review and then posted, this way I can eliminate the spammers. Thanks for your understanding!

    Maplewood Rose Garden

    in response to “The Rose Family” by Robert Frost

    The rose is more than a rose
    or an apple a pear a plum
    or strawberries on a vine
    or raspberries on a bush.

    In Maplewood Park
    the rose has always been
    more than a rose
    where the sign reads:
    Kelsey’s Landing
    freedom was assured
    for escaping slaves–
    the last stop on the way to freedom
    further beyond Niagara Falls.

    Rose the house slave
    who bore all the master’s
    mulatto children
    only to see them
    sold one by one
    on the auction block
    was not Rose
    but this was the name
    she answered to
    when boarding
    one of those Canadian vessels
    here at the end
    of the Underground Railroad.

    Oh Rose of Carolina
    Rosa Carolina
    is what they call wild rose
    and La France–
    which sounds like the name
    of a slave ship–
    is a hybrid tea rose.

    Roses are herbs shrubs flowers
    fruits trees abundant crops–
    even boysenberries are roses
    and not all grow in gardens
    like Maplewood.
