Witness and Behold the End

White Lilies,
Scattered on the ground,
Out of their element.
Witness,
Purity,
Deprived of its origin.
Behold,
Clarity no longer visible.
 
White Roses,
In the purest snow,
Frozen to the core.
Witness,
Loveliness,
Stripped away so rash.
Behold,
Beauty destroyed.

White flowers,
All around,
Trampled into dust.
Witness,
Wildness,
Stolen without knowledge.
Behold,
Endless death fighting to prevail.

    We found a frozen-to-death kitty in our stray shelter yesterday. So sad about the kitty, so sad about nature. Congrats on your fine poem. daver

    Death only wins if allowed to prevail. Inner strength and determination can be powerful allies. Hugs.
