The Scent of Flowers


 The Scent of Flowers

In the depths of silence

And the oceans of emptiness

Through the unrelenting

Teeming, sands of time

Shadows shift

In the firmament

In the growing darkness

As the light slips away

In the timeless, sanguine

Elysian cathedral of the evening sky

Just as memories

Fade slowly

And strangely

Quietly, in the end

Like the scent

Of once bright flowers
