CCC15: Mortality

Sunflower Dead

Crimson’s Creative Challenge

Annual. Faded.
Flagging. Head-hanging. Dying
Reminder of our mortality.

Written for Crimson’s Creative Challenge #15

I’d like to thank The Haunted Wordsmith for introducing me to this form: the Didactic Cinquain

  5. This poetic form is amazing. And you hit the mark with the visual word imagery. We must celebrate the beautiful new blooming flower, as well as the flower whose bloom has ended. We are all part of that cycle, as much as many people try to deny it! πŸŒΈπŸ˜‰
