Friday Flash 55 - He Love Me, He Loves Me Not - June 17, 2011

She had begun to doubt his love,
He often was away,
But, imagine her surprise today,
When she received a huge bouquet!

The fragrance of the roses,
Spread throughout the room,
But when her finger touched a thorn,
That's when she met her doom!

Her last thought was that her love was a forensic toxicologist.

I am participating in that wonderful meme, Friday Flash 55,
hosted by non other than the charming, debonair Mr. Know It All.
Check out the site and join in the fun!

    I haven't gotten flowers in an eternity...guess nobody loves me! Or, should I say, nobody hates me!

    Now that is a brilliant statement. I love roses so a few thorns are well worth the price for the beauty and scent of those flowers.

    I am so glad you liked my poem. I have a good friend in Switzerland who is forensic pathologist. I thought he might get a kick out of it.

    I just wasn't feeling poetic for Friday's 55;
    thought it would be fun to try something different. Glad you liked it.

    I can't always write silly, sweet poetry. I do have a sinister spot in the far reaches of my mind!

    JDaniel4's Mom -
    I always tell people - no flowers at my funeral, I want them while I'm alive to enjoy them. I usually have to buy them for myself!!
