Garden Of Love

roses,
clover,
then it's
over;
love made,
price paid;
belladonna,
nightshade.

Wonderfully clever as well
as seductive.

Thank you, Cynthia. Like you, sometimes I find brevity says more.

I really like your poetry, very intelligently written. :) Poetry is actually my favorite medium as well, but I've put a pause on my poetry blogs till I graduate and have time to actually add to them again. Thanks for your comment. :)

Do I sense a haiku-like element of less-is-more here? *ducks* Whatever it is, I like it--tight and extremely succinct--you can't boil it down any cleaner than this. Of the two reposts, both excellent, this is my favorite.

Love this one! I love the short choppy lines.

Yep, a definite haiku element (runs and hides behind Hedge).

Wow! So much, but never too much, just all the right words in the right order. Love it!

Sassy. Bold. Love this.

Ha!
You wrapped this one up very neatly, and the choice of comparative flowers replaces the need for lengthy explanations. Flowers used to a most effective degree here.
