There's some beautiful imagery here. The love lost at the end was sad, and the lonely little rosebud was a lovely image of that too.
What a beautiful poem, like a secret little treasure to read when the days are long and tiring. Rich and evocative, yet as gentle on the mind as a cool summer breeze. An absolute pleasure to read. God bless.

Hi Paul. I agree with all the commenters - this was a lovely poem. But I just wanted to let you know that unfortunately it was just a tiny bit under the minimum word count to be included in the judging. There is a minimum of 150 words, and a maximum of 750. Your entry came in at just 135 words - just a tiny bit too far under the minimum allowed. I'm really sorry about that. I hope you'll enter again in the future, but just keep the word count in mind. With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
