You opened your heart
laid bare hopes, dreams, fear.
You welcomed unreservedly
your light shone bright.
You stood tall, strong yet fragile
You sought communion, connection
You called to life
Your day in the sun too short
Your view of the future curtailed.
As the sun moves away
As light leaves the day
So too, you retreat.
Slave to a seasonal beat. [67 words]
Author note: I cheated this week and used something I’d already written – to this flower! Hope you enjoy it. Trish
