Thursday photo prompt – Window #writephoto

Welcome to the first writephoto prompt of 2018!

Life and Death of a Rose

The rose vine twines,
Reflected in the pane,
The occupier looks out,
Confined to bed again.
The rose vine buds,
Depicting life anew,
The occupier strains,
To look out on skies of blue.
The rose vine knocks
On the lattice frame outside,
The occupier wishes
For truths instead of lies.
The rose vine blooms,
The sun shines through the glass,
The occupier smiles,
Summer’s here at last.
The rose vine sways,
Kissed by rain as it falls
The occupier weeps,
She hears her loved ones call.
Red petals beckon,
Slowly begin to fade,
The occupier wastes away,
And to rest is laid.
The rose vine dies,
Sorrow rules once more,
The bereft family sigh,
Nought is as it was before.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    You thought of “Little Women” and I thought of “Oliver Twist.” Interesting.

    This is just beautiful, Di, and yet rather tragic… it seems my rose is drawing sadness from some this week!

    • There’s a cottage in the New Forest that has windows like this and red roses grow all around them and the doorways. They have the traditional leaded light panes rather than today’s designs, so each pane reflects the light differently. I don’t know why Little Women came to mind though.

  5. So poignant yet beautiful. Lovely poem.
