RWB Workshop Poem of the Week – Apr. 13

I’m in Love with a Jacaranda Rose

Milton Ehrlich

Pink with a hint
of mauve purple,
a penetrating scent
sweeter than Baclava
when she blooms.

Every morning
many kisses,
one petal at a time.

My flower is fragile
but strong enough
to spook a horse.

A momentary gaze
at her radiant glow.

I dread the day
she will fade.

I practice weeping now.
