November Roses

November roses,

resisting the calendar, resisting the urge to

die and wither and fertilize.

New life opens to an uncommon warm

and tells me winter is indeed coming;

aspects of the cold already shatter my weak heart, but

in this reminder moment, I remember hope–

hope comes in November roses.

    Beautiful macro, Lilly. But the words that go with the images are equally stunning – full of hope!
