Petals fall

A rose is the visible result of an infinitude of complicated goings on in the bosom of the earth and in the air above, and similarly a work of art is the product of strange activities in the human mind. 
- Clive Bell 

 
Acrylics on canvas panel – 9″ × 12″ - unframed

Flower petals fall one by one
After the long day is done 
This flower has lived a good life 
With very little strife 
Memories of busy bees 
And images of little hands fingering it lovingly 
A lover’s purpose was in mind 
When it was picked from the vine 
Given to the one he loved 
As a token of all the things they’ve done 
Drooping low in the vase 
Is where it takes its resting place 
As its petals fall one by one 
One by one
- Bryanne Colver
