Wonder - Poem by Lindsey Priest

Exploded
Riotous colour
Petals bright as sunshine
Splashes of scarlet
Run ragged
To the heart
Of the flower head.
Momentary beauty
For appreciation,
Soon to lose
It’s fresh bloom.
A living, dying flower.

Youthful and pretty
Gasps of admiration
Desirable, desired
Daunted.
More than a moment
Passes.
Weeks, months, years,
Eternally beautiful
Inside.

Bloom withers

But

Soul survives.
