Blossomed solitary, a flower unseen

Colors missed; hues ignored

Fragrances ne'er sniffed

Scattered into emptiness


By planters 'n florists 

Makers unmaking their creatures 

Leaving them derelict

Forlorn in a floral paradise


Alone inside a packed bouquet

Kindred flowers, strangers by design

Precious little to share 

Save for empty stares

  • dusk arising

    The sadness of the florists 'merchandise'.

    The cast-off 'didn't quite make the grade' bloom - never to fulfill is intended purpose. The assembled beauties used as a tool to warm the heart of a willing mistress.

    Mother nature, what have we done with your beauties?

        Their beauty is lost to those who assemble them and can only be seen by those who look deeply into them.
