Late springtime sunset—
mimicking the horizon,
my pink roses blush.

Swallowing the sun,
the night creeps over our homes,
a new rose blushes.

Sunset before storm—
a ripple of burnt orange
magic in the air.

Hat tip for the sun,
welcoming wave to the moon—
roses in the breeze.

Seize the day

When the young shut off
and shun the world, the mature
smile with open arms.
