Breath of Life

Your bloom is short lived.
A brief moment in time.
Yet it brings such great joy;
Your beauty sublime.

The curve of your stem
Your petals so soft.
As the breeze rustles by
Sending sweetness aloft.

Leaves embrace warmly
As your fragrance emotes
A lasting impression
Of sensuous throats

In the time of your being
You share with us briefly
Your unconscious beauty
Given ever so freely.

Never a moment
Of sadness or strife.
Just simple, grand beauty
Within your breath of life.
