One Poem by Derek Brown

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Woman with Roses

She has gathered her rosebuds.
She knows what is coming.
Watch her intently,
as she stands before you
with her auburn hair,
and her strange resignation.

In another, different time
she was aware, alive.
And yet she is here, now.
Observe her closely,
then look further, beyond
her silent and painted window.


Derek Brown was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland. He has previously been published in various New Voices Press anthologies, Omphalos Issue 12, Amethyst Review and Nine Muses Poetry.
