Aster 'Blue Autumn'

Aster 'Blue Autumn,' summer wanes. The shining sky of dusk is drenched in splendor. Tremulously, I watch shadows that arrive all to soon-to purloin sun's last rays. Aster 'Blue Autumn,' Virgo aches, and you're re-birthed from star dust that she cries- to bloom beneath blue skies until the fatal time when breath is snatched . . . Pensively I wait. Inspired by the Aster flower named Blue Autumn For the '8 Lines Of Beauty - Lyric' Poetry Contest of Rick Parise
