The Life of a Flower

Temporal, sweet, aromatic

A pause for reflection

Beginning from so tiny a seed
and rushing to bloom
elegantly

And now
With petals like paper
So delicate, fragile, yet so
alive

still

and soft
and held here
in this moment
I won’t forget you

If only as withered colors in a jar
