A red hibiscus as pretty as can be,
Thrives on my porch for all to see.
The blooms are spectacular but quickly die,
They are carpe diem personified.

Thank you Kathy. It reminds me of love...sometimes you have to just appreciate the moment as it could be short lived.

Nice, I had one for ten years then each year it got smaller and smaller then finally gone. Love your description.

Thank you DM Babbit. I've had this one over a year. I keep cutting it back because it gets so big. No maintenance blooms I like!
