Monday's Memory: the one with the rose

this one is kind of bittersweet
this is a picture taken last year
in my backyard
my beautiful rosebush
flourishing
giving promise...hope
there was something about that first rose every year...

it was there when i moved in
and it was such a surprise when i saw that first perfect yellow rose
i loved watching for new buds
new blooms

we dug it up when i moved
put it in a pot...
i was so excited
to be able to take my beloved rosebush with me

but i'm afraid when nashville flooded
my rose may have become a casualty
i hope...
i pray (for real)
that it only LOOKS dead
because
damn
i love that rosebush...
