Poetry: Last Rose

Posted by Good Times on

Last Rose

Like the crest of a giant wave,

A warm Autumn day

Holds me up to the sun,

Illuminating

Edges of lost Summer,

Reviving a frost-bruised rosebud

Bent on withering,

Persuaded to open

After all

And wink at Winter eyes

Staring from a distance.

 

Joan Kehoe
