autumn’s last rose

Just one sweet little bud
left on an almost-bare rosebush,
leaves having already scattered
in autumn’s breeze.

A little gift from Mother Nature,
one tiny jewel
nestled in a box
of fallen yesterdays.

    I feel a sense of peace when I look at this. The muted colors are beautiful. Your words are too.
