Today I witnessed
the flower of a plant
unhinge and drop.
At the start of spring
it had budded and sprung
then blossomed and smiled
to the admiration of onlookers.
Horticulturist tended to its beauty
Then the folks with extra euros
paid to take it home,
it will be a worthy companion
in their backyard garden.
Now its time in the sun is done
its nectar completely sucked
Leaving it dry and weary
with no strength to cling
to the floral axis.
It descended casually to the soil
where its purpose of existence will change.
