Cemetery Walk - flash fiction

As he walked through the cemetery, he noticed a rose that sat in the dirt, beautiful and oblivious to its surroundings. It had been sat there some time, as the mould and moss grew around it undisturbed. As he stopped to pick it up, he noticed how brightly it glowed, in an unnatural, almost insincere fashion.
He stood and observed it for a while. It was fabric, with a velvety warm that was comforting in an unusual day. He walked on, holding it gently, caressing each of the petals. He thought his thoughts and walked his casual walk. It was a day for taking your time, a day to admire the golden tones of the late winter sunshine. A day to breathe deep and feel alive. To be warmed by the simplicity of life, and small moments like a rose in the dirt.
