Bright blooms

suggest spring:

carefree days,

novelty,

Bright blooms

celebrate spring:

gratitude,

optimism.

Summer soon.

The bouquet of irises

is dessicated;

brown paper shells devoid of scent,

death displayed in a vase.

The purple blooms,

dripped inky streaks down the walls

and puddles onto the floor.

The stains leave a memory of floral glory

for tomorrow.
