Flowers


How long can a flower last?
These colors once so true
(you brought them to me
fresh, still moist
with morning dew)
have faded into dusty hue, and dry
fragility.  (Yet perfect still!
When caught by sunlight
in a certain way, I almost smell
them fresh again, as on that day!)

Will petals drop and crumble
if not by love renewed?
I wonder how these blooms would fare
if they hadn’t been from you.
