The Pink Carnation

The pink flower that is called a carnation I received a sad but yet odd invitation, To a get together with all my family and no strangers It seemed nice knowing there was no danger, Why does everyone have a pink carnation Is the color a symbol of elimination, I feel at ease in a sad sort of way I don't believe this was suppose to be a happy day, As I went further in to the candle lit room I have a sense of a pass life that ended in gloom, When I look around the room I see so many pink carnations I know now deep inside these beautiful flowers mean it is a final destination.

Beautiful yet hauntingly sad - we had carnations for dads flowers at his funeral - they are my favourite cut flower. Hugs Jan xx
