Petals Perfume and Poems

unwritten poems
hide in delicate petals
of an unfurled rose
romance buds despite the thorns
spilling words with its perfume

My response to Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor #12 Romance

The prompt for today is ‘romance’ and Chèvrefeuillehave given us an image as inspiration to create a tanka about romance together with an example of one of his own:

queen of flowers
saying “I love you”
a bouquet of roses
wrapped in a love poem
full of everlasting love
