Preserving a moment within the beauty of nature, contemplating mortality.
Rose petals,
descending tear drops,
clot brittle weeds --
strafe gentle on currents.
Lift lost love
to the sky.
See me now from heaven?

Bald buds, watchful,
buoyed on pricked arms;
warm hearts,
throb with joy,
envision mirth glee --
bittersweet castoffs.
For some greater purpose?

Butterflies fibrillate,
intoxify a solemn,
near barren bush --
sunshine glitter
searching succulent
dew drops
that I might live forever?

Wait a little while longer.
If my breath should leave me,
I want to be standing here
in your presence.
