Event:
One of my roses had a large pink bud on it. I let it stay, hoping I would have one last rose of summer, unexpectedly in December. But it never bloomed; it's a dot of bright pink wilting on the end of a dark wet rose vine, in the snow.

Meditation based on a play on words:
I have thyme in a bottle on my pantry shelf. Last spring when we planted it, last summer when the parsley threatened to overgrow it, the chill rain of autumn when I cut the last of it before the freeze, all is there, together with the anticipation of stews and roasts all through the coming winter. Fragile dry leaves, crumbling, fragrant.

Form:
Any sort of vining, entwining form with words to match.

Your prompt about the rose bud merged with a sad message I received from a friend today, and turned into the memorial poem "Snowbud."
