velvet blooms blood rose
subtle scent wafts nose
petals
folds of ruffled rows
vivid color grows
sepals
thorns prick of sorrows
wilted tomorrows
medals

    They are so beautiful while they last… so short, so sweet.

    A very good reminder that life is not always a bed of roses! Age brings a lot of wilting and some thorns as well! Nicely done!
