I watched
A flower’s life.
It was
A beautiful flower.
A white lily
Succumbed too early to the poisons of nature.
White lilies
Always were her favorite kind of flower.

I watched
A flower bloom.
It was
A green bud.
A white lily
It became as it shyly opened itself to the world.
White lilies
Always were her favorite kind of flower.

I watched
A flower thrive.
It was
A caring giver.
A white lily
Gave up its little pollen for all of the birds and bees.
White lilies
Always were her favorite kind of flower.

I watched
A flower die.
It was
A horrific wilting.
A white lily
Shriveled up until it was no longer there.
White lilies
Always were her favorite kind of flower.
