Stop For Beauty

Written for:  Poetic Asides November 2016 Chapbook Challenge
For today’s prompt, write a description poem. Pick someone or something to describe. Get in depth, or just brush along the surface.

Coral colored, they bloomed.
Our roses bush soared high and wide
all through spring, summer, and fall.

With cooler air, we assumed
new buds would not survive.
Coral colored, they bloomed.

With arriving November,
our sturdy buds opened red.
Our rose bush soared high and wide.

Each day I check on their progress.
Will I add winter to seasonal list
all through spring, summer, and fall?

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
