Wild Rose Country

See the source image

The Desert Rose of the Southwest has a first cousin in the Northwest. On the planes of Alberta, Canada the Wild Rose grows abundantly. In fact, in the 1930s it was chosen as the provincial flower. Alberta is now known as Wild Rose Country. It is amazing how they thrive and bloom in such a dry and hostile environment. Frank Tassone, asked us to write a Haikai poem that eludes to the Desert Rose.

Desert Rose blooming
Freely on desert and plains
Reminds us to bloom
Wherever we are planted
Beauty thrives in harsh places
