Yankees challenge...answered

Genetically engineered
Desired and appreciated,
It's creation is fact,
Yet still it's debated,
The sight alone makes maidens hearts sing,
Nowhere in nature could you find such a thing,
Petals so lovely with color so true,
If I were a rose I would be so blue..

Madtat....wow I was thinking more like an orchid while I was reading your entry....it's truly amazing how genetically altered these once most rarest and wonderful of all flowers have become...but when you threw blue rose out there at the end.....that threw me a curve.....seems like those do exist however I'm not sure if they do in nature or not??....but I mostly appreciate your great sense of humor here....great entry!!!

The Blue Rose - the Holy Grail of Roses its been called. Apparently nature did not provide the blue pigment in roses so alternatives have been thought of to achieve it, genetically engineering it, staining method, spraying it too. I think the fact that it's unattainable lends to the mystery it holds. It remains a symbol of mystery, of being unattainable but on the one hand signifies hope and new beginnings. Awesome poem, you've managed to encapsulate so much about the flower (and I guess you) in just a few lines.bouquetthumbs up
