Scarlet Rosebud

Glass diamonds on your neck

A scarlet rosebud on your chest

and I do wonder

why all the world seems to

stare at you

Emerald jewels on your ears

Innocent lies on your lips

and I do wonder

why all my heart seems to

devour you.


This poem is directly inspired by the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge at Go Dog Go Cafe. I am working through older prompts to help spark my imagination. Be sure to check out the challenge every Tuesday! Photo by Eva Waardenburg on Unsplash.

    Excellent idea, very grateful that you are taking the time to go through older prompts… I like to think of the things we do at the cafe as lively and not tied to a static moment of time… this poem nails it… both the prompt and the dynamic ness of the cafe!
