Funeral Of A Flower - Poem by Carla Ann Abraham

Withered flower bloom
Death cannot partake of life
You are my mirror

Why must I see
That beauty can not endure
forgotten in the snow

In silence I feel
The loss

Your scent and warmth
slip away
Fast into the ground

Muted, I watch in helpless protest

They are in waiting
Masses gathered for your bones
They pick at your velvety flesh like vultures
And strip you of your grace
