Roses grow behind my house.
Splashes of hot color
on green
on brown.

I can see them through window and screen
bespeckled by water droplets
as I take my morning shower.

If I cut them, arrange them
beautifully in a vase on my table
I will enjoy them more
often as I pass by
throughout the day.

I will miss concentrated moments
of beauty in the morning
in the shower.

Roses grow still behind my house.
