dead of winter
poor rose bush
empty branches
but it pricks me when i pass
just sleeping it says

my son asks
where do roses go in winter
for once i can answer
why to pasadena son
to the rose parade

at fifty she was long gone
she’d pass a flower shop
but at the liquor store make a stop
where she’d pick four roses

    These are all amazing but I like the first one best. I like the image of the rose bush, stripped bare in the cold, poking at passers-by letting them know it may be cold and stiff, but will bloom again.

    I really like these, Daver. Especially that middle one. I adore roses and can't wait for mine to push up from the ground. I lost two bushes of them last year and hope I don't lose my others.
