Death Of Beauty - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Nature playing peacefully around me, as I sit in inner turmoil - full of doubt.
Hot heat from the sun, soaking quickly into my skin.
Slightly blowing - a windy breeze blows gently - barely cooling me off.
Leaves and dead blossoms from bougainvillaes scrape across the cement as they are blown around.
A little breeze comes sneaking up on me - picking up my hair - cooling my forehead a little.
Bees are buzzing lazily around, touching flowers and taking off.
A bouquet of bougainvillae broke off and fell into the waters of the fountain.
Lying sadly atop the water - in it's mercy - it gets blown about, even though it would rather not.
Getting plenty of water which to drink - it lies - slowly dying, because there is too much of it.
Beauty in the water's depth, sadness as it poses for a grave.
Light, unknowingly, a vigil keeps - showing everyone the death of beauty.
