The flowers in the vase

sit in green water,

heads drooping,

stems rubber,

celebration of beauty

worn by time, fading into

compost for future

blossoming.

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.
