Beauty is fleeting...

My addition to this weeks A Dash of Sunny Prompt Night

DEATH OF A ROSE

 Twinkle, twinkle little Rose
Your name lives on in many prose,
 While in this world of dank decay
Your sparkle slowly fades away.
 As petals fall and leaves are curled,
Onto the compost heap your hurled.
We prune your limbs and lop your head.
A sign that Summer too is dead.

I know...Summer is hardly showing her skirts here....but it amused me :D
Enjoy XXX

  1. From bloom to compost... what a delight. Have I told you how much I love your style? Your lively (and deadly) sense of humor? Well, I do. Love it, that is.

    And summer has been waving at us from behind the clouds. It's raining in NYC!

  2. Oh Gina, this is such a wise and profound write. Beauty is indeed fleeting in the world and its present circumstances. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support.

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

  5. Yes I see that all the time, the beauty only lasts a little while then we return the old blooms to fertilise and assist in the creation of a new bloom.
