“A rose alone”

I saw the rose lying there, and I wondered what had happened.

Had someone left it there?

Or had they dropped it?

Had someone gotten it as a gift and rejected it?

Or had someone thrown it away?

I saw it there in the snow. It’s red petals amplified by it.

I wanted to know why it was there.

I wanted to know who had left it there.

I knew it couldn’t be a good story.

A rose laying alone in the snow.

There was nothing good about it.

But I wanted to know.

And I was distraught when I realized that I would never know.

Something had happened, and the rose had been left there.

And I would never know what.
