Haiku Prompt Challenge: ‘Fame’ and ‘War’

The Wars of the Roses…

Blooms both red and white,

Famed emblems of long-dead wars,

Opposing roses…

In the late 15th Century the Tudor House of Lancaster and the Plantagenet House of York fought long and hard over the throne of England, this 30-year dynastic battle being symbolised in history by the red rose of Lancaster and the white rose of York.
