Roses are Red

May 5, 2007 at 11:11 am (Uncategorized)

Roses are red,
or so they say,
but do you ever wonder
how they got that way?
Was it the flush of love
from a random weed
or increased blood flow
from producing a seed?
Perhaps an abrasion
from a passer-by
or an allergic reaction
to the feet of a fly.
It may sound quite silly,
but think in your head.
What happened to that rose
to make it so red?

This was the result of being tagged on my other blog to write a poem beginning with the all-too-familiar first lines of Roses are red. And you know my rule. Every poem goes here. So. ya know. There it is.

    That was astounding good considering the convention you were working within.
    The cadance wavered a bit, but there was very cool progression of ideas.
