Lavender rose,
with the sun filterring through your frail petals,
I hate to see you go.
Bending so pitifully on that prickly stem
with your green leaves rusting yellow,
you are still worthy of great admiration.
In these last moments of existence,
you remain fragrant and memorably exquisite.
Knowing that your time has come
stings my conscience
with an indescribable melancholy.
What a void your absence will create.

A WINTER STORM THAT ENLIGHTENS EVERY SOUL

THE HUMAN RACE

WINTER’S DECEMBER RAIN

I awoke to

the downpour

a  winter’s rain.

Its light fingers

swept across the roof,

then spanked the streets.

Water spilled  

from the eves

rustling the leaves,

pelting the tin shed.

Thunder punctuated the

night like deafening

cymbals turning the

curtain of tumbling tears

into a whispering chorus.

The concert  was free

for those who listened

in respectful solitude.

The sounds alerted the

senses singing that

existence was far more

than a pleasant dream.

It was a wondrous symphony

preserved in our hearts.

The indisputable lesson

would never die and

forever live for

 the mind to ponder.
