Lilacs by Anna Sokol



waxy 
  wet 
    wilting 
      lilacs
        less lovely
          but smelling
            wildly wonderful
              somewhat spent
                but drenched in
                  punchy pungency

"The grass withers and the flowers fall, 
but the word of our God endures forever.” ~Isaiah 40:8
