Why Do the Flowers Sing?

What is in the song of the flowers?

What are the gentle words

Of the lilies?


What are the

A thousand voices telling

Stories of love

Weaving endless lines

In air

Mourning the laughs

The deep eyes

Locks of brown hair.


Why do the flowers sing

For her when she walks past

The bed of dew?

Why do the flowers weep

With tears of red,


And crystal blue?


What is in the song of the flowers

It is all of life

All of death

It is every tear she shed

His soul lifted when he smiled

The last words

They said.


For every man, every woman

Every giggling child

There is one

Somewhere, waiting

Tethered to them

We don’t see the lines.


A flower, a record

Of all they did.

Of every word

Every scream

All the distorted images, of

 Their every dream.


In death, it starts

Slow, the song is

Telling of one who once walked

Was loved

Was hated

With soothing words,

once talked.


And forever the flower sings,

The song of life

Forever it mourns

Forever at song.
