A Spiky Situation

Flower Spike

My first ever quadrille for dversepoets Quadrille #75: Spike up a Poem

A Spiky Situation

Tender stalks protected
by thorns like iron spikes
ready to impale
the unwary traveler who
drawn to the allure
of bright blossoms
pricks a finger

We curse the flower
for it’s thorns
rather than rejoice
that the thorn bush
gives us such ardent bloom

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP
