Poet's showcase

By Beverly Boyd

Late blooming flowers
misted with frost
keep on and on.

Red is still red
and gold gold.
They bend or stand tall.

One day their petals will blow
loose in the wind,
touching my heart
with remembered hours
of a season passed,
fragments that move
into the cycle of things
from the ruin of flowers.
