    of flowers
    there are
    more roses

    Please disregard my comment re the email address – feel really stupid as I see it's not publicly displayed. So sorry! As they say – "duh!" And yes, the haiku – which is what tinywords is all about- lovely poem, a bow to the poet indeed!

    It's strange, but each time I read this I think of daisies! I think it's because 'trying to remember, trying to forget' reminds me of 'he loves me, he loves me not'!

    The fact that these are winter roses can only mean the end of something. Beautifully sad.

    Mark — I think Sherry just posted her request here because she couldn't figure out how to use the subscribe/unsubscribe form. I've removed her message.
