why

is it the cold

or just the greyness

this morning

not much sunlight - yet

what am i thinking of ...

winter roses

or you know

the lack of actual roses

bare and boney

spartan

and thorny

looking

sorta dead

but

steadfast

upright and bold

on its vigil

instead

waiting

for warmer days

to bloom

as if to say

hey

i will survive

these tough times

inspiring

folks

they will be talking

about me

you just wait

and see

simple

as counting

1-2-3

don't

doubt

come back in my spring

to visit

and enjoy

i can be pretty

awesome

again

nice to hear from ya !

waiting days for roses sounds like a title for another poem-

thorny for a reason - i guess ...that's nature .
