Flowers, plants in general are much hardier than us humans, and it is sad that they succumb to nature :)

* “The Rose of Resurrection * From Passing to Life * In Still to Beauty * My Dear Sweet Beautiful Sara * Enchanting * These Senses Amid Such Fragrance * And Where Is The Frost? * Buried In What Was to Become What Is * A Velvet Rose * Sooo Very Beautiful * My Luv, Always * Sarah.” *

Oh, how sad it is in early spring when flowers start to bloom, only to be struck down by a late frost. I checked "about this poem" and am surprised a rose bush would be blooming this late. I bet they get a lot of TLC from you, Sara. Very much enjoyed your poem. Love, Carolyn

Hi Sara..no I don't want you to remove it you have been a good friend and I would like to help you learn the form. They are not my criteria they are internationally recognized CORE elements of haiku..I didn't even insist on a season word..which is also what most sites agree is most traditional..we are trying for as traditional a haiku as we can get and write in english...

What a beautiful contrast you've put here, Sara! I really enjoyed this one and to know that it was inspired by a true rosebud in your garden makes it even more special :) this in a way is somewhat similar to the haiku I was thinking,,, but I thought of cardinal amidst the snow... thank you for sharing & I wish you the best! thank you as well for you input in my haiku :)
