Red Roses (junk journal poems)


Red Roses

Long-stemmed and red
he declares with a dozen, yet my eye also
upon spying Forget Me Nots
his protection and care; thank my lucky stars
our life's 
journey has been full of God's 

by Margaret Bednar, February 25, 2021

This is a poem form called "Waltmarie" (10 lines, even lines are two syllables, odd lines are longer (but no specific syllable count).   Even lines make their own mini-poem if read separately.

"our life's journey has been full of God's blessings" indeed. We should take note. You did well with form, fun writing, huh?

Oh, that's so nicely done, and what a lovely message – with the mini poem deepening the original.
