Day 10: Portrait Poem

Today's prompt was to write a portrait poem of a person. Mine was inspired literally, by this painting from John Williams Waterhouse 'The Soul of the Rose.'


You are a poem
quiet and true. 
Elaborate at times,
every word a coup. 

Resplendent in rhyme:
what you say
with what you do. 
Rhythm in kind. 

Your heart a metaphor
of everything good. 
Beauty your main
