Rose of Autumn

White rose of Autumn,

Echoes eerily, elusive –

Sinking Moon in solitude,

Reassuringly reticent.

Yellow rose of Autumn,

Glows golden, glistening –

Shining Sun in solitude,

Magnificently majestic.

Pink rose of Autumn,

Dares delicately, disarming –

Setting Sun in solitude,

Sensational splendour.

Red rose of Autumn,

Provocative persona, powerful –

Moon rising in solitude

Dangerously decadent.

The rose shown in the image was captured on my iPhone a long while back. It is none of the colours mentioned in the poem but the colour is close to that which I had in my wedding bouquet back in 1984. Perhaps I should add another few lines?
