Today is letter R for the April A to Z Blogging challenge and I am writing on Alphabet R for Rose Day, under the theme ‘College Memories.’ Hope you like it as I take a trip down memory lane and re-visit the first Rose Day experience in the December at Fergusson College during the first year.
A beautiful rose kindle love and passion among lonely hearts;
Red Rose for love, Yellow Rose for friendship and white Rose for crush;
Roses available at the flower shops for five bucks;
It was the first Rose Day that I gonna experience and best that carved beautiful memories;
Red Rose tendered to this beautiful girl standing near the flower shop,
‘Happy Rose Day,’ I sheepishly muttered as the green-eyed stranger smiled.
I made her day.
No girl can get angry;
After all, it’s Rose Day in College;
Wearing suit and ties in the hot Pune Summer, I wonder what I am doing all dressed like a corporate on this beautiful, romantic day in College;
It’s Rose Day;
The girls look pretty and dignified as they are all decked up in beautiful, colorful Sarees bloom in the campus;
Rose Day is an opportunity for the Prince in Shining Armor to strike a conversation, hoping something special with the girl he never dare to speak;
Romantic escapades, declaration of love, innocent crushes and silly friendship,
it’s all scripted on Rose Day;
The flowers hidden inside the bag find the way to the heart of the rightful owners, the girls;
The start of innocent love stories weave magic on the hearts that long for courtship and love;
Rose Day is thy name as innocent glances and smiles are exchanged;
They make life long memories as we look back and mull over jealous hearts;
The courage to walk up to the Queen of Hearts and heart breaker and tender her a Red Rose in front of the boyfriend,
as she smiles to you several times;
You know you’ve won her heart for your daring act as she comes looking for you in college;
The hearts are longing for each other and the lips quiver at the sight of each other;
Magic weaved by Rose Day.
We said, ‘Happy Rose Day.’
