Frozen Angels – Haibun – November 20, 2014


Roses bloom into November but sometimes suddenly, the snow begins to fall. There they stand in stasis.  Once the snow melts .. the petals drop one by one.

The little girl saw the roses and said delightedly that they looked like frozen angels.

A warm front hit the valley and the petals dropped.

She cried when she saw the nude stems but then had an idea. She ran home, went up to the attic and rummaged in a large box.  Returning, she adorned the rose-bush with her Mum’s white Christmas tree angels.

    • It’s the Carpe Diem Family meme on WP and of course Yves great photo and prompt … they seemed to walk hand in hand today. I’m glad you enjoyed the little story …
