Poems About Roses

rose

May each moment
Of my life
Be the sweetness-fragrance
Of my heart-rose

- Sri Chinmoy

rose

No more brooding
No more despondancy
Your life shall become
The beauty of a rose,
The song of the dawn,
The dance of twilight.

- Sri Chinmoy

 

gratitude

A gratitude-heart
Is to discover on earth
A Heaven-delivered rose.

- Sri Chinmoy

 

My heart is telling me
That I can easily find roses
Where my critics find only thorns.

- Sri Chinmoy (4)

No more
My mind-thorns.
More, ever more,
My heart-roses.

Sri Chinmoy (5)
