A Shadow of Yourself

backyard-plants-25-of-28

Shone all summer long.
Side by side with hundreds more,
Dazzling with texture, symmetry and colour.

Defying the morning chill and afternoon gale
For a few days yet, maybe only til tomorrow?
Your petals will float to the ground.

Soon leaves will follow.
All that will remain
A shadow…
