Dahlia

Dahlia, the minutes go by,
Like petals on a flower drooping
Dying slowly in waiting.
Dahlia, where are you now?
I wait like flowers waiting the rain
As the sun pierces each leaf
Glowing green in bursts of orange.
The light hides you away.
I wait.
As my dahlias droop away.
I think of you on a summer’s day.
