Rebirth

by SerenaLantha

Brown petals crumble
In my fist, the wilted rose
Slipping from my grasp

To the cold, hard ground
Where the earth will reclaim it
For another life

Who will never know
The sacrifice the rose made
Until it’s own death.

This is the ever
Lasting way, circle of life
Then death and rebirth.
