one gorgeous red rose
aflame in the morning sun
throbbing all alone
both sentinel reminder
and summer’s glorious end

    coming back to this one I just LOVE. And are you serious about your mortgage and when it will finally be paid? Please tell me you are joking.

    You've captured so much beauty here, Daver-- I really enjoy how you put grace and beauty to the end of Summer-- thank you for passing by my poem and I do think you are such a kind hearted soul with a soft spot for animals-- I hope all is well with you dear Daver!
