Frozen Roses

Updated: Nov 20, 2022


Happy end of November and Happy Thanksgiving...It is getting cold out there!

******************


Frozen Roses

Frozen roses

sway bravely

on thorny green stems.

Their paper white

petals,

dewy no more,

softly

rattle on the

splintered fence.


They are the survivors.


The only ones.

Confused,

they nod

their turbaned heads

to passersbys.

“Should we stay

or

should we leave

this

chilly

autumn party?”

The humans shrug

and leave them

shivering

in the biting wind.


It is the final number;

the brittle dance

of

late November.
