My Journey w/ Grief - The Parade

The Parade

The Parade

Within
a
day
the parade begins
each participant
dressed in glory and splendor
beyond compare
breathe taking colors
beautiful aromas
fill up the senses
they come and they come
filing up room after room
with their glorious presence and fragrance

but they are dying
each day they drupe and wilt
their beauty fades
their fragrant aroma
become a stench
as I carry each arrangement to the trash
I do so with tears
the parade of life and beauty
turns into a
funeral
procession
the grass withers
and
the flowers fade
all too soon

the dying flowers become a
poignant
reminder of the fading and dying
of
my
flower
