wild rose – – haiku

#Haiku Happenings #2: Janice’s latest haiku for my current #haikai challenge!


wild rose…

five soft petals by the fence

This week’s Haikai Challenge prompt is ‘desert rose’, Rosa Stellata, a wild rose native to North America’s Southwest. Looking into the world of wild roses I am struck by the similarities and differences of multiple species. Near my home lives the pasture rose or Rosa Carolina. Out west, Alberta’s provincial flower is Rosa acicularis and there is also a prairie rose, Rosa setigera.
