Lush spring greenery, leaf upon leaf

Purity thrives.

Budding to become.

Dancing and encircling;

Enticing opportunities

Velvet skin. Petal by petal, almost.

[It begins...]

Now’s the only time. Your only chance

The moment of perfection is also the last;

One breath, one blink, one heartbeat.

[...and ends]

Colours drain, life droops

Chances fold and memories wilt.

Brittle stigma and fragile bones.

Faces fade in silent showers

Weathered and worn

Tired and torn

Float. Fall. Finish

Unknown.
