Rosemary Nissen-Wade #29.2: A Gift of Roses

A Gift of Roses

Unusual pale apricot –
roses from my friend,
in a black pot

where they stayed,
moving with me to all
the rented houses.

Every year
they flowered twice:
in Spring and Autumn.

Until they stopped. 
No blooms, not a bud,
now my friend is dead. 

For Quadrille #12 at dVerse: Rose


  1. I really like this. Thank you, Rosemary. Great half rhyme between bud and dead there at the end. Great finish.

  2. yes, the ending is wonderful, Rosemary
