Petals of Life

“Don’t you just love the flow of mesmerising colours that arrive in April in the form of tulips!”

I wrote this poem for the following prompts.

Petals of Life

Leaves of emerald green
Petals a relish of red
Tulips on steps so serene
Within a jug of dread

Flowers marking death
A tragic passing event
This family left bereft
Blooms masking torment

But I must conjecture this
There’s no sadness only celebration
Of a long life remiss
Smile and applaud with adoration

Don’t forget Holly Ward investigates, Stolen Treasures is out on Amazon now!

A recent bank robbery. A saddened man. A coded message. Can they all be connected?
Young Sleuth Holly Ward is determined to help the man. It’s not long before she too comes under assault from a group of dangerous individuals. In the face of intimidation, abduction and even murder can Holly solve the clues and catch the criminals before she becomes the next Stolen Treasure?

Thanks for reading my friends.

There’s more in the Poetry CornerPoetry Nook, and the Short Story Collection

Have a great day!

  1. Yes, it’s very timely for a vase of beautiful tulips. Australia has been trying hard to come to terms with Warnie’s sudden passing. He is a national icon over here. His memorial service at the MCG last night was beautifully done. We watched it on TV like millions of others. He was a highly likable guy and the king of spin. Lovely poem, Mason.

    1. Aww, thanks. I keep getting orders to make in the woodshed now. So I get a day to write here and there and then have to vanish a few days. I will always come back when I can though. I love being our writing community.
