Frank J. Tassone has challenged us to write haikai poetry using the word Rose or alluding to roses, due to the fact that Presidents’ Day was on Monday. I did not even know that the United States’ national flower is the rose. That makes me happy. Thank you, Frank, for the prompt!

My country’s flower

Is a rose: many colors, many thorns

Embrace the bouquet.
