Garden Rose

Written August 21, 2013


There's a girl in the garden
She's messing with your rose bed
Plucking weeds out from your head
And watering the seeds in your bed

But where will she wander
When the roses are dead
Will she come back for more
When they turn back to red

She can run all alone
Write this story in stone
On concrete slabs
Of skin and bone

    another one with such an interesting style. You are more surreal than me so I don't always get it. But it takes many kinds to make the poet's world and I find you very creative.

    Thanks! I sincerely enjoy and appreciate you're personal comments. I really enjoy writing with ambiguity and symbolism so it can be interpreted differently. If you want you should check out "In the Bucket" and "The Eyes on the Wall". They are my two favorite pieces I've written and are very different from one another.
