ever growing depth ~ haibun

From the beginning, I could have sworn our love was like a rose in full bloom. But, as the years pass, I find that layers exist, like petals opening further to reveal a depth that draws me in ever further.

within layers of beauty
forever blooming

This haibun in no way meets Frank Tassone’s Haikai Challenge for this week, to use the kigo “rose” as a symbol for Presidents’ Day, but I’ll admit it was the first thing that came to mind when I thought of “rose.”

  1. Love tends to happen this way…the more we come to know a person, the more layers and depth we find. For those who can accept those layers, the world is theirs. This was a lovely poem. I also wanted to thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read my recent post, Elusive Success. It meant a lot to me that you did.
