Senryu ~ Rose

A Poem by Sharon L.H. Kelly

                





                        the gardener yawns

                   planting, watering, pruning

                          red rosebud opens

Thank you so much!
I love the roses. I re-planted my Grandfather roses in my yard. They are wild and free in my yard. I enjoyed the photo and good words. Thank you Sharon for sharing the excellent poetry.

The flowers remind us of good people missed and you are welcome.
it opens sort of like the gardener's yawn...perhaps it is awed by the sun and the rest of nature around it and it's mouth is just agape...

delightful piece that says so much in so few words....i also see someone bored in a relationship...but what he doesn't notice is how expressive, colorful and full of life she is...he will regret neglecting his rose later.

Very Beautiful piece I wish I had written as I have many rose pictures. I will have to play with that idea and give you credit for inspiration. Hahaha. Thanks for sharing.

"yawns" may be too close to boredom for some
would you consider "sighs", closer to the moment
when the rosebud opens.

I like that too! I used "yawns" to compare to 'opens." You know, the gardener's mouth opens like a r.. read more
