TRANSITORY PLEASURES


TRANSITORY PLEASURES

With a one-or-two day blast of scent

Tree petals begin the descent

Onto bare ground,

With little/no sound…

As soon as the flowering is spent.

Unlike cherry  pink arrays,

The tree near our door displays…

A quick shot of flower

Wilting in the hour

It seems, going brown in just days!
