A flower decays
and appearing in free fall
now life disappears.
Vibrant colors conquered by night
a shell once filled with vibrant life
remembrance of beauty is all.
Standing together consoling with grief
last summer’s joy grey lifeless before us
a final dark moment farewell.
A curled-up stained glass leaf
broken cells hanging lifeless like decaying azure
at one-time a majestic canopy.
A dead leaf with sky-blue
distorted honeycomb structures shaped with thoughtful fortuitous
deteriorated beauty before its demise.
My thoughts are fading now
slowly disappearing from my time and silence
the world around me goes.
There you lay in nowhere land.
Between the sand and memories.
A stone to mark the time for now.
And in a stare, we’ll meet again.
