Rose Petals

Spread the love

Lying on the pavement;
Drenched in the rain.
Its petals blood red;
Having withered in vain.

The rose ceased to bloom;
Wet cement holds its mold.
World comes down thrashing;
As truth comes harsh and cold.

Hours passing by;
The time for rose is brief.
Witnessing the lover’s plight;
Bearing tumultuous grief.

Gloom thus enclosed;
Roaring winds begun.
Bittersweet farewell;
Rising of the Sun.

Lying on the pavement;
Drenched in the rain.
Its petals blood red;
Having withered in vain.

 

“If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for a moment.” – Georgia O’Keeffe

    “A nice combination of posts. It’s interesting how folks are focusing on the rose from the video, but it is a strong image. You’re taken that idea and written an evocative poem about love beginning and end. The cycle of love and life,” she suggested.
    “Brilliant write,” she concluded.
    “Hope you enjoyed the exercise. I’m looking forward to your prompt next week,” she added.
