All the classic writers have had the most charmingly nuanced relationship with roses. During the Renaissance period, flowers were considered an essential aspect of culture and tapped into to express emotions and subtly communicate messages. In his plays, Shakespeare utilized flowers to symbolize various emotions and ideas, such as love, innocence, beauty, and devotion. For instance, in the play Romeo and Juliet, Juliet says “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” to suggest that the essence of something does not change based on its name, in this case, love. In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, flowers, especially the love-in-idleness flower, got used to represent the theme of love.
The British modernist writer, Virginia Woolf, wrote about roses in some of her literary works. In her writing, roses symbolize a range of themes and emotions. In her essay “Street Haunting: A London Adventure,” Woolf ponders the beauty of roses and their ability to evoke emotions and memories. She states, “The sight of roses often causes one to feel the beauty and therefore sadness as if roses symbolize everything transitory.” Through the use of roses, this essay examines the connection between beauty, recollection, and the passage of time.

Being with you reinstates my faith in humanity, love, folklore, and simplicity. Your soul is delicately pure as the rose petals and as empowered as its sepals.
I have never felt as inhibited, expansive, and alive within my existence as I go through all our conversations, silences, and abandoned laughter. You deserve every morsel of happiness, love, warmth, magic, ambition, sincerity, gravity, ambition, vision, and epiphany you care about and resonate with. Thank you for being who you are, honey!
I bumped into you in the middle of a busy, chaotic street, only to discover how wonderful the world is. I did not have a type before I met you. It is through knowing you that I understood what my heart resonates with. It is you, all of you!
You are special to me in ways more than one. It’s been quite a mystery, given the short period of our conversations. While one never knows what the future holds, I promise you can always count on me in your presence and absence. Could we break free of the corporate monotony today? Let us bring out a playlist of classics! I can already hear Louis Armstrong’s “I see trees of green, red roses too, I see them bloom, for me and you.” May we slow dance away in the evening?
Hey, you! The sunshine is bundling for you, with a tint in the shade of pinks and reds.
“It is Rose day,” they say. It feels like a day of the hues n your eyes for me.
The universe celebrates you every day, with both sides of its spectrum emerging to become more of their selves, sensibilities, and arts.
There is something about you that breaks the myths apart and then creates newer ones. Somewhere in the middle of imagination and reality, gets built a space where even the idea of a union is individualistic, where every star has its perspective of the moon, where the sun listens to the prayers chanted by the waters of oceans like the echoes get interpreted in a dark tunnel, & where the mountains feel having been born in the light of their spirited history.
You are a form of nature that gets more loveable with the discovery of every breath.
Valentine’s week is an opportunity to relax and have fun. Embrace your playful side and let your emotions show and hair down. Don’t be afraid to be dramatic, laugh, cry, or be silly. Plan stimulating dates and make the most of this special time.
