My  Last Rose

While on a stroll in my windswept yard,

I searched for plants that weren’t hit too hard.

For rain, hail and winds stripped and cropped,

Dainty rose pedals till they dropped.

But then a sun ray shone down from the sky,

And something pink and shiny caught my eye.


I pushed back the fern and lifted a branch,

To see sparkly rain drops twinkle and dance,

Upon a single rose – spread in full blossom, 

A delicate beauty – quietly awesome.

For nothing is quite as lovely or shines much brighter,

Than when frail life morphs into a damn good Fighter.


My pink rose.

  1. I love it, Angelika. Flowers can be remarkably resilient. Did you have bad storms recently? The weather is odd. It feels like autumn.

  2. The unexpected hidden beauty is the most beautiful and treasured.

  3. Thank you serendipitydoit. Today it was sweltering hot, ( which is awful too…lol) but all last week we had storms. I’ think of you every time we hear of the bad weather up North. And that’s been a lot! Hope you didn’t get any flooding.


  4. Diane Ingvarsson, so true! Now that would make a good poem too. Have you ever written any poetry?
