The Truth About Flowers

credit
I’m in the habit of sharing a few words of attempted poetry here on Tuesdays. I link up over at dVerse, a place for poets of all kinds, to mingle. For love of words and lack of perfection, I just do it. The doors open at 3 PM Eastern time…I kinda like it there when I can hang out a bit and take a little break at the Pub. There are a lot of really inspiring writers sharing…
join us?

The Truth About Flowers

The flower
by neglect
withered
and died…
but no one noticed
they just walked by
busy with 
their own agendas
pie in the sky
they failed to 
see…
the petals
wilted
growth stilted
all sides
 pressed in
the very 
life 
and 
beauty
 pressed out
stepped on
walked over
crushed
leaving faint aroma
and stain
Once full of life
now dry
lifeless
memory faded
sweep it away
sweep it away
under the carpet 
where hearts lie betrayed
the truth about flowers
is-
flowers aren’t
 forever
still
 always displayed
but their beauty fleeting
tenderness bleeds out
grows brittle
with time
and neglect…
one moment 
flash of time
glorious,
remembered no more…
remembered 
no 
more.

Linking with dVerse for Open link night at the Pub-time for some poetic justice!
