Single Pink Peony

It was chilly and rainy during our entire trip, but the weather actually made it fun to take pictures. I love the water drops on this peony's petals. This flower is begging for a haiku.

Sorry David. You have been snaked. Anon is right about format. However, I might place yours first in the "high school girl who shows great promise as a poet" category. And your imagery does capture the beautiful pain of that little peony.
