Graveside


I would have brought flowers
But it seemed wrong, somehow
To cut down one beauty
In memory of another
I bring instead, a seed
And water, in my eye.

    Once again I am struck right in the solar plexus by the spare but perfectly-aimed words you have used to create a universe of experience to which everyone can relate. (Report) Reply

    So true, we cut the flowers at full bloom, at the hieght of their beauty, most often forgetting we are slaying the thing we cherish (Report) Reply

    Wow, I am a puddle now, like the wicked witch who got water thrown on her,
    and she melted (but not cause she was made of sugar and spice and all that's nice) .
    This is so original and perfect. Thanks for this, made my day. (Report) Reply

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
