Haiku: Rose

Updated on September 9, 2013

Rose symbolizes love, friendship, and peace.We cannot imagine rose without thorns. Thorns are pain and suffering.

  • Red rose is love.
  • Yellow is friendship.
  • White is peace.


Lovely Rose

Fresh with dew drops

Thorn pricks

      Where there's beauty there's often something prepared to defend it; and where there's danger, beauty will often be found behind it. The perfect haiku, for nature's undeniable pairing.

      Combining your Haiku with your rose photographs was a brilliant idea.

      Please keep the images as still photos rather than convert them to a video. I like clicking on each thumbnail in order to cause the larger image to appear.
