This made me smile. It sums up the experience of my current stage of life so succinctly, humorously, and poignantly. Thank you.
As with roses, so with old friends. A beautifully apt juxtaposition.
The unexpected 3rd line was a delight. Made me chuckle. Subsequent readings more sombre. Well done. Thanks for making my day with this clever ku.
Thanks for reminding me of my
50th HS Reunion.

Yes, some roses live for a long time, don't they. But they are still beautiful – just like this haiku.
rose garden, dont get too close or yo will be poked
I find third line little bit funny, sorry. But if look from the other side, we're all getting older. In the end of the live, we will be sitting in rose garden, with friends like us.
