Yesterday's Flower

Yesterday's Flower


sunshine falls on potent flowers
like the nectar of youth's love
' blooms in emerald green ', held captive rose buds

we're short lived as the fragrance arose
for the intoxication of seasons past
the celebration of flower's spring
worn thin life's very stem

dew drops hang so sparkling clear
and the musk of a honeysuckle nights
caress the moment and kiss good-by

are bouts of blistering blues until I die

I relish moments of a happy time in life
but indelible ink spots of cruelty soar from strife
