Poems of Spring

Surging into summer, the first bright harbingers
of spring begin to fade, their optimistic colours awash
in the brightening sun. Purple streaking into white radiating
 from the tulip's sex, anthers cluster close to the central pistil, dust,
like ashes, shedding to the fading petals. Black pigment the remnants of words
penned in blossom, words written in the wind, now evaporated like the mist of dawn.
