“ And sunset shall shy away, with blushes of deep vermilion.
‘ Farewell!’, waves the timeless rose, who seeks to shutter her satin broadcast this evensong,
Dreaming abstracts of the warmth he gave; a rest, well earned.
Her passion, is matched, verily, only by cerise cries from his reluctant departure;
Dipping, below convex horizon, issuing a warrant of entropic ‘ sayonara ‘ ,
To their cyan world.
His watch, now finite, changes guard with the silvery-ebon,
Which serves host, to a weeping, shimmery crescent,
Thence governs, her obsidian cacophony.
Hauntings from yonder, by ten million phantasmal eyes,
That wink upon a lover’s unyielding heart,
Who patiently abides, diligently awaiting her petals to reawaken,
So this brave may pluck an opulent bouquet,
To bestow a transient token upon his secret love,
Whose merlot jowls, flush, like heaven’s distant torch,
That mirrors, with molten cheeks of unabated, fiery scarlet. “
