“I’ve always really liked those flowers,” Blaise told Ansgar. “They remind me of my favorite Robert Frost poem, ‘Asking For Roses’.
“Of course,” his friend reminded him, “He has another one too, ‘The Rose Family’, that’s quite relevant here.”
“Ha, Amateur!” the former went on. “I can top that. What about Robert Burns’ ‘My Love Is Like A Red Red Rose’?
Just then their wives showed up. “Don’t go so crazy. You know perfectly well those flowers aren’t even real,” Clarabelle reminded them.
“Hey, so who cares?” Edna explained. These guys are always reciting works of fiction anway.”
Once again it’s time for Rochelle’s Friday Fictioneers. This week she has supplied the photo prompt, so I don’t have to put another link here. We all so hope you enjoy our works of fiction.
