The Roses of Saadi

Apr 6, 2019 by

I wanted to bring you roses this morning;
But I had closed so many in my sash
That the knots were too tight to contain them.

***

The knots split. 
The roses blew away.
All blew off to the sea, 
borne by the wind,
Carried to the water, never to return.

***

The waves looked red as if inflamed.
Tonight, my dress is still perfumed.
Breathe in the fragrant memory.
