Scarlet Rosebud by Liyona

Glass diamonds on your neck

A scarlet rosebud on your chest

and I do wonder

why all the world seems to

stare at you

Emerald jewels on your ears

Innocent lies on your lips

and I do wonder

why all my heart seems to

devour you.


This poem is directly inspired by the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge found here at the Go Dog Go Cafe. The prompt was “Scarlet Rosebud”. I am working through older prompts to help spark my imagination. Be sure to check out the challenge every Tuesday! Photo by Eva Waardenburg on Unsplash.
