Now, the pink roses.
Youth's passionate red blossoms
following Child's white.
And now comes the lovely pink,
glowing deeply in the heart.


This is a tanka (5, 7, 5, 7, 7) written in response to the prompt at One Deep Breath: "This week I invite you to break the "rules" and write a haiku on the subject of love. If you are a traditionalist, you might choose to write a tanka instead... which, more often, include an emotional element." I guess I'm a bit of a traditionalist. Happy Valentine's Day!
