Death of Flowers This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Winter is death.
Sentencing the flowers of summer
To their cold graves.
No hospitals for them.
Their illness - the cold -
Is quite fatal.

And no flowers for their funerals -
The bleeding hearts
And the peace lilies
Are all dead too.

Sleeping in silence.
But not forever.
No, only until
The return of the warm
Summer months.
