love comes in rainbow colours

rainbow of roses

weary worker man

end of day tired buys a

rainbow of roses

weary worker man

rainbow roses forgotten

at home left in car

unsunny Sunday

weary worker man ponders

what he is missing

weary worker man

remembers rainbow roses

oh! brightens her day

weary worker man

snoozes unsunny Sunday

end of week tired

weary worker man

brightens unsunny Sunday

oh! just being home.

          Oh, the worker man… I still can’t believe the worker man left the roses in the car… he says he only buys them if they’re fresh… they mustn’t have fresh roses often… and they survived the night.
          Sunday morning, I said I need to wash your jacket… he said it’s in the ute… got a weird look on his face, and took off. Apparently if they had been withered I’d have never known about it πŸ˜‰

        Maybe that is what happens to all the other fresh roses. Monday morning he gets in the ute and shoves Fridays now-withered offering under the seat until he can chuck them without you noticing… πŸ˜‰

      Thank you πŸ™‚ Despite their onite sojourn on the backseat of the ute, the roses revived beautifully. Sadly I need to leave them at home and go off to work today… the worker man left an hour ago…

    The condensed message full of alliteration, repetition and word choice sounds(assonance? Forgotten the term.) really bloom! Somehow the structure suggests the physical nature of the rose – and in the end you get the sweetness. (roughseas is right – the picture is renaissance painting like – perfect fit with the depth and contrast of light and dark)
    Brilliantly done.

      Thank you… I went a bit overboard with the haiku’s… but it was a miserable weather Sunday… what else to do but write poetry whilst gazing at one’s roses and snoozing G.O.!

      I’m always happy when the G.O. gets home.
      There’s a series of TV advts in Australia promoting work site safety “come home to them” which has such an impact… I wish the industry would change, there’s too many construction associated workers working far too many hours.

        It’s so unfortunate. It’s only once something terrible happens that safety starts to matter to an industry. 😦
