Poem of the Day



Ten days in a vase

The dead rose weeps red petals

Onto the white bench

Dianne says: I originally made a list of so many red and white images — blood on a band aid, the Red Cross sign, Japan’s flag and so on, but this morning when I walked into our kitchen, the poem came to me as per this haiku.
