Yellow Roses

It seems such a waste Yellow roses on display In a crystal vase Not to be touched by warm skin Or rustled by waning wind
Wouldn't it be sweet Yellow roses in her hair Tickled by spring air Like an overdue reprise Petals scattered in the breeze
For Rick's "Tanka x2" contest

    I feel this way of longing and involvement with many other things.

    nice imagery and I like your idea of wearing the roses instead of merely admiring them in a vase :)

    I love the vision of yellow rosebuds adding beauty to some-one's hair. Good Luck with this lovely Tanka, SuZ

    Very charming picture here. A beautiful painting captured for all time I daresay.

    Heather, this poem emanates a golden light. I also felt like yellow roses as I was reading it and... I do believe that's a first. Kudos. ~Jeremy

    We both chose the yellow rose for the contest. Best wishes with this lovely entry. Thank you for my rating in your contest. Your first place winners were magnificent, some of the best I've seen on these pages. Love, Joyce

    I really like the imagery this tanka evokes. We try to capture beauty by putting in a vase or handing it up on the wall. But nothing beats what God the beauty which God intended in the beginning. Good poem!

    Yes it is a waste and yes it would be sweet. A lovely thought and killer tankas!...Fave! changed the title though didn't you? I saw this earlier but had to run. It was in French earlier right? rose jaune?...I've got one called la guimauve flaming. Later!...vous etes une poetesse incroyable!

    Amazing...I have never seen a tanka with a rhyme scheme!...I would love to have the pleasure of seeing you with a yellow rose in your hair 'tickled by spring air'...You have topped yourself again, madame...Sky's the limit - Tim
