Daylily



The sun slowly rises,




Flooding the sky with light
pinks and reds.
The daylily wakes.






The heat leaves behind a scorching kiss

On the dry caked blackened earth
Leaving nothing in its wake but dread

The sun falls








Past the end of the earth
A withered lily perks in the light of a silver moon

One last dance before
The sun returns
