Member Monday: The Occasional Rose by Jennifer Levens

Welcome back to Member Monday.  It’s a pleasure to feature Writers Forum board member and treasurer, Jennifer Levens.  She’s an actress, a published author, an accountant and, as demonstrated by today’s submission, she always sees things in a humorous light.  Welcome, Jennifer!

The Occasional Rose

by Jennifer Levens

The subtle glow of peach peering out of the corner of an undeveloped lot;

the shot of red exploding in the middle of an unplowed field;

the white beauty draped over a barbed wire fence.

It is always a surprise, when riding shotgun to see a rose appear outside the orderly garden setting.

Maybe it’s time to thank a bird!

One thought on “Member Monday: The Occasional Rose by Jennifer Levens

  1. Almost Haiku like in its simplicity and elegance.
    There is a richness here that I miss sometimes in the spare lines of Haiku.
    Above all this is pleasant; ya don’t pleasant all that often and with a nice little dash of cleverness at the end.
    Thanks for starting my Monday off with a smile.
