A Solitary Rose

Friday, February 28th, 2014

A Solitary Rose sways with the freezing
wind, so cold that the petals can not fall
but stand erect as though remembering the
summer’s loving warmth. Placed next to the
home where none know of the burning cold
lingering just over the threshold, the
Solitary Rose, covered in vines and thorns,
strives to live as though there is no other
purpose in its existence, but soon becomes
like one who shares a memory and none are
there to listen.

A Single Red Rose

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

A single red rose you would bring to me,
Its significance was always very clear to see.
A single red rose, for a single love,
A love over the years we both grew to be so proud of.

Music and moments only we could share,
The love I had longed for long ago filled by my prayer.
Of a man who would hold me and love me forever,
Always beside me no matter the weather.

Through the good times and bad times to always be there,
No love like ours, there would be none to compare.
No one would ever come between us or tear us apart,
This was true love right from the start.

When you came along this dream of mine,
You brought with you a love I had always hoped to find.
Every Friday on payday when you came home to me,
In your hand another single red rose for me to see.

Over the years those lovely visions still come to my mind,
Of our two hearts now together forever entwined.
Sealed by a single red rose brought by my true love,
A love sent long ago to me from heaven above.

Single White Rose

Friday, February 14th, 2014

One single, white rose Among so many red
Individual, genuine beauty, an outcast.
Could it be purer than the rest?

Its ivory surface looks strange
Among the crimson-stained flowers
Its crisp clean smell enchants.

By any other name–we know
It would smell as sweet
But by any other color, it would not be so alluring.

Not RED
Not stained with the savageness of love
Not apologetic, troubled, withered yellow.

But white–chaste, pure untouched ivory
Its petals will not wither, will not fall
An outcast among SO MANY red
an outcast among all the rest
It will outlive them all.

How many roses to send?

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Roses by the NumbersPeople often struggle with the question of how many roses to send to a lover or other party.

Does it even matter, you may ask?

Isn’t more always better?

No, less is often more. And, yes, it does matter.

The number of roses you send each tell a different story.

1 Rose A solitary rose in any color symbolizes the highest degree of devotion to one person. It can also mean “love at first sight”. (Personally, but then we’re a little biased, we think this is the only number of roses you’ll ever need!)
2 Roses If you wish to send a marriage proposal, give 2 intertwined roses. They also convey mutual feelings of love.
3 Roses These simply mean “I Love You”. (Gettit? That phrase has 3 words, and there are three roses… πŸ˜‰ )
5 Roses Says “I love you very much!”
6 Roses Need some love? Miss someone? A bouquet of 6 roses will convey that message!
7 Roses This one means “I’m totally passionate about you”.
9 Roses “I promise that we’ll be together for life”.
10 Roses If you’re flirting, or maybe it’s a first date, 10 roses will spell out “You’re pretty”, or perfect.
11 Roses Want to be different? Send one less than a dozen roses, as 11 roses indicate to your lover that you truly love them.
12 Roses A bunch of a dozen roses is the good ‘ol standby for most, and can mean “I love you”, “You’re mine”, or just tell someone your relationship has gone to the next level.
13 Roses If you’re not superstitious (and neither is the recipient), 13 roses – hopefully, that you sent anonymously – tells the recipient they have a secret admirer, or (if they already know who you are) that you’re forever friends.
15 Roses Guys, remember this one! It says “I’m really sorry!”.
20 Roses “My love for you is sincere”.
21 Roses When you’re committed to only one.
24 Roses “I always think of you” (24 hours/day).
25 Roses These are used to send congratulations.
36 Roses Tells your loved one that you remember your romantic moments.
40 Roses “My love for you is the real thing!”
44 Roses Send these when you want to promise constant and unwavering love.
50 Roses Symbolizes unbound love that has matured.
99 Roses Tells your lover that you’ll love them until you die.
100 Roses If your love/marriage will last (just) 100 years, this is for you. πŸ™‚
101 Roses Conveys “You’re my one and only”.
108 Roses Two entwined roses will do the trick (see above), but this number of roses also ask “Will you please marry me?”.
365 Roses This one’s easy, as there is a rose for each day of the year: “I love you every single day”.
999 Roses For those with deep pockets, 999 roses will tell your lover that your love will last till the end of time!
1001 Roses If you can afford it, 1001 roses symbolize indefinite love.

Finally, and this really is a no-brainer, 0 (zero) roses simply means you forgot your loved one’s birthday, a special day, or your anniversary! If that ever happens, immediately give 15 roses and, for good measure, add another 1001 (or more)! πŸ˜‰

The Meaning Of A Solitary Rose

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Because a single rose is able to symbolize all manifestations of love, it is the flower of choice for most.

A single rose says it so much better!

This non-verbal language of a solitary rose translates into any language, and transcends all barriers. It’s also very useful for guys who often can’t find the right words to convey their love. πŸ™‚

Because…

  • A single rose can say “I Love You.”
  • A solitary rose can say “I’m Jealous.”
  • A single rose can say “I’m Sorry.”
  • One rose can say “It’s Over.”
  • A single rose can say “Thank You.”
  • A solitary rose can say “We’re Friends Forever.”
  • One rose can say “You Are Beautiful.”
  • A solitary rose can say “You are Pure.”
  • A single rose can say “You Bring Joy to My Life.”

… and much more!

Single Red Rose

But what do the different colors of a single rose mean?

  • Most people already know that a single red rose simply means “Love”.
  • One solitary yellow rose generally means dying love or platonic love. But in some countries it can also symbolize jealousy and infidelity, so watch out!
  • Get a blue rose to tell someone he/she is a mystery to you (“mysterious”).
  • A green rose conveys calm.
  • Guys, if you screw up, send a single white rose – it says “sorry”! But it can also mean innocence, purity, secrecy, friendship, reverence and humility.
  • If you can get your hands on one black rose*, it will tell the recipient that you have a slavish devotion for him/her (as a true black fresh rose is impossible to produce). But, be careful, as some people also use a black rose to send a message that a relationship is over!
  • A solitary burgundy rose tells the other party you find them very beautiful.
  • If you’d like to show your passion for your lover, get a single orange rose.
  • One yellow rose with red tips symbolizes friendship, or falling in love.
  • To show admiration or sympathy, give a light pink rose.
  • When you send someone a purple rose, it conveys protection (paternal/maternal love).
  • A solitary pink rose conveys grace and gentle feelings of love.
  • If you wish to thank someone, you can send one dark pink rose, as it symbolizes gratitude.

Tip: Always attach a card to your single rose, explaining the meaning behind it – just to be on the safe side. πŸ˜‰

*Often, fresh-cut roses may not be available in all the colors (particularly, black), so a good idea is to then give a single preserved rose or solitary sprayed novelty rose instead.
