Thoughts on a rose…

Reading Suzanne’s blog nudged me towards Bastet’s prompt today, for a Shadorma. This came to me quite quickly….but has nothing to do with the prompt…. Am preparing this post on iPad, and having problems so can’t link at present…I’ll try again later. Updated with links now!

It’s the first of this type of poem I have written, so not as polished as some!

I’ve written it around one of my Beauty in Decay images as you can see below

Almost gone

Almost gone

Beautiful
once, now no longer
this rose dies
but slowly,
with dignity – entrancing
an image preserved.
