Who can blame the rose its compulsion to make thorns?

The weary blossoms 

bow their heads to the rain drops,
welcoming the rest. 
The leaves remember 
hopeful buds, bursting with life,
eager in the Sun. 
These fragile beauties
captivate, intoxicate.
They’re seasonal hires.
Suffering cut backs,
the greens dig deep to survive

Inspired by numerous photos of these rain soaked rosebushes as well as the last two prompts from Haiku Horizons

One thought on “Who can blame the rose its compulsion to make thorns?

  1. Hi there,

    I found your blog after one of my friends shared it with me on Facebook and wanted to run a few things by you. I have a skin care company that I'm working with which I think is right up your alley. Let me know if you have a moment to discuss.
