Love’s Path, senryu series

sun on snow—
a diamond ring
on my finger

the scent of roses
just before dawn
in the bridal suite

a red rose—
his word of farewell
brings relief

  1. Such gorgeous sets of Senryu, Colleen! You went the extra mile and brought back volumes of emotions with you to share- I love the scent of roses just before dawn. Thank you so much for writing to the prompt ❤️❤️❤️

  2. It sounds like you expressed a love full cycle Colleen — but a love nonetheless. Happy Valentines Day my friend. 🙂✌🏼❣️

    1. Definitely the latter, Robbie. When we’re young we often make mistakes or misjudge ourselves. As we get older there’s an acceptance and relization of who you are. I wanted the senryu to show that love isn’t always sunshine and roses.
