Eulogy

Carpe Diem #26 (Camellia)



lying in bed
she eyes her camellias
empty bed when roses bloom

  2. Thank you, Meenakshi and Mark, for visiting and commenting. I knew I wanted to transition from camellias dying in May to roses blooming in May. This is what came out of me. I felt sad too wondering where it originated.

  3. On the other hand we would not savor the fleeting flowers so much if they bloomed all the time.

    1. Thank you. Seems that camellias bring sorrow to mind for many of us.

  6. What I see in it is mourning a death.

    Hence the sadness.

    1. Yes, what I felt. I guess it is a good thing that the emotion flowed into the words. Thank you!
