Bleeding Red, the Roses

Updated on December 6, 2013

A Haiku Poem in Dedication


Bleeding red... the blooms,


roses for fallen,.. no dooms.


prayers, in church rooms.



Red rose petals..blooms,


as everyone there assumes.


not just brides, but grooms.



Those wars seem to loom,


as for each to meet their doom.


one rose by each tomb.



All in Spring to bloom,


every mother's child from womb.


sweeping away gloom.

      I remember once my mum and I cultivated a rose called Ingrid Bergman so named after the famous actresss and what a beautiful velvet red it was.

      Thank you for the obvious poetic labor of love by you and you are a gift to nature too because you adore 'her' and respect her beauty.

      Not having read to much of your work .. i can see what i have missed .. I never choose a poem ..i let one find me , but a poem about a rose or flower is always inspiring to me .. and this is a beauty. i must say.

      very good write ..so touching a tribute .. only one word fits .. BEAUTIFUL..

      Thank you midget. I wanted to express that roses signify life and death;that we may give up our lives, and yet new birth comes to sweep a way the gloom. The new life also comes, heralded by the roses presence. whonu

      You really told a whole lifetime story in just a few words. Simply beautiful and using the rose just made it that much easier to relate as we look at the beautiful pictures you chose.

      Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.

      It is oxymoronic how roses can highlight both positivity and negativity! This is a new change to your usual style, Who, and very well done too!

      "Be careful with the thorns they could prick you deep,

      May send message of confusions and of mixed sensations

      A gesture of kindness, a feeling of likeness and of LOVE" --that is simply the nature of a rose.

      Simplicity is beauty and you have it here in this piece.

      Voted up++, pinning and sharing.

      My meaning is using the roses was to show that there is hope and each petal as a prayer for the fallen ones.
