Roses: Poems and Photo

only now beginning
to find my place and poems
late-blooming rose
from the bush
planted long before
we came here


turning the vase
of flowers
there are
more roses

(Published in Bell’s Letters Poet.)


growing older
goldenrod and roses
refreshed by rain

Karl took this photo on September 17, 2016 – the last rose that year.
