the roses open
curled petals showing off scent–
hubris can smell sweet
I resonate with any image of roses. I love them. The more scented the better. Thanks for roses in mid-winter. And “hubris” is a lovely word. I shall have to use it soon. You’re poems always make my world wider. Thanks.
Alice, what a wonderful thing to say–thanks.
aaah subtle vanity perhaps. 🙂 nice Sus.
Thanks, Jen 😉
YW 🙂 can you check IP for me – think I lost the plot.. 🙂
And the BS stank too… Witty and on point. Lovely
🙂 thanks, Obinna!
Thank you Teresa.
BEAUTIFUL skimmed poetry ! Susan may I ask why you’ve never visited my blog? Am I that bad?
Oh, Deb, you are not bad at all, and I used to follow you. I love your poetry, and somehow you dropped off my “blogs I follow” thing. I am ashamed to admit I had not noticed that and have no idea when it happened. I’ll go visit you now. I feel like a jerk.
Ah, hubris . . . wonderful interpretation of prompt. You upped pride a notch.
Wearing our best can be a good thing, so long as we take the time to appreciate it in others as well as in ourselves.
Quite true, Nelle!

Thank you, Eliz!
I’m not sure…
It seems to me that much of great literature suggests that hubris stinks! 🙂
