Rose’s Thorns

As fallen petals know

that Autumn has begun,

the love-me-not’s and love-me-so’s

whisper under summer’s sun.

But petals blow too swift

to hear such hopeful words,

and drown in thoughts while still adrift

of how the winter hurts.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
