Tea Rose in North Garden

Winter shadows pervade the empty space

It’s grey/ drab/ colorless/ enigma hard to shake

Sometimes embraced with pleasure/ other times creating friction/biting nails and deep emotional angst

When it lingers /refusing to leave

I know its necessary/but

 Outside the snow is present but not intrusive

In my vision/now real/ and at other times/ seemingly far removed from the present

This existence of shadows and harsh reality draws me reluctantly/ sometimes onwards

In the overhang under the eaves trough a solitary rose bush has defied winter

Hanging on for dear life/a sheltered bloom/whilst winter raged on

Now plucked off the thorny vine/ some drops of blood splattered on the white snow

Reminds me of the immediacy of feeling/ somewhat.
