Amaranth - Poem by Nathan Major

The spiders weave
Their silky flowers
Never wilting, immortal bloom
Stems of diamond, petals of dewdrops
The cords indestructible
If only to them

Wind blows
Argent strands snap
Silver locks and tresses tear
Into the breeze

Wove a life
Our fiery blossom
Eternal efflorescence
Stems of tenderness, petals of passion
Our feelings unquenchable
If only to us

Life flows
Affection disintegrates
Love’s ties tear and pull me
From your arms

It’s quiet now
The amaranth succumbs
Sometimes we break the unbreakable
