The Rose

Spring becomes Summer.
Poignantly fragile rosebud.
Unfurl. Face the sun.
Today I am linking with Floral Friday Fotos and Haiku my Heart.

  6. If only it were so easy to say to the rosebud, "Unfurl," and it did!

  13. Hello Libby,
    It's a beautiful photo of a Spring Rose and your haiku matches it perfectly. I haven't been around lately for haiku because I have been working on a thesis but I will be back soon. Thanks for dropping by!

  14. Libby...thank you so much for taking the time to research and leave the comments and for caring..I was thinking that the people who are really in charge of over seeing the regulations that protect the planet don't listen..but my blog readers do. It is funny that you mention Love Canal as I did my student teaching at the 99th Street School where most of the toxins were coming up from the ground....I knew it wasn't good..Thank you so much for caring...Michelle

    1. I really do and I really admire the work you do. I don't think it is a coincidence that you worked at that school. Keep fighting the good fight, but also having fun!
