Haiku challenge: Time & Grow

This is for Ronovan’s haiku challenge. You can join in here.

The first haiku has ‘bloom’ instead of ‘grow’—not really a synonym, but I prefer it. So, I’ve added a second haiku with both suggested words.

 

Your time will come, rose

to fall in a cloud of scent.

Bloom, now, in beauty.

Once upon a time,

the green grass grew all around,

now grey concrete sprouts.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
