Thematic Photographic # 137 Late

So in honor of being late for this week's "late" Thematic Photographic post I give to you one simple late lost bloomer.....
Too late for the party?

If you want to be late as well then take a visit to

A Dead Rose?
Ah such a fair rose I once was

am I late for being of velvety softness

besides late for the prom or the buzz

of a passing bee

and too late to be

worn upon your lapel

for an evening spell

of pricking fingers

or filling a room

with my perfect scent?

and so very late to be

within a freshly picked bouquet

from a lover sent

so call me late

for the party

but not the glory

to be one lost late bloom

so late to some event.

But it's not too late for the petals to perform a service to rejuvenate the soil.

Karen, u have a way w/words!.Not only does it fit the theme but the photo as well....maybe its not too late? potpourri is the next step.

Late for the party but not for the glory--that's terrific! These theme photos are so much fun to see, especially when coupled with the perfect words, as here.

There's something about the bowed head of this rose-in-repose. The light and shadows in the photo parallel the words in your verse, and both are excellent.

Bob and Kalei, Hpicasso, You are so right! And your nice comments mean a lot to me!
Lynne thanks for stopping by, it's always great to hear from you!
Titanium, thanks for noticing and commenting on the other stuff I had in thought when snapping this picture...it's also a very OLD rose!
