A Rose by Any Other Name
by Sharmagne Leland-St.John
...after a photo by the poet

Roses in full bloom
Country kitchen
Breakfast room
The scent of coffee
mingles with rose perfume

Pots and jugs of
Clotted cream
Upon the shelf

Glass vase holding roses
I grew myself
Reminds me of
This dream I dreamt

Souvenirs of
Trips abroad
Odds and ends and curiosities
A pitcher
A French lunch box
A pot for tea

Ladder back chairs
Stained dark brown
Stand out against
Pale ochre background

Lacey curtains
Out of view
Complement the cupboard's
Melancholy hue
