reflections

so
these melons
would yield
to the pull of SunDown;
give up the succulence
and leave me with only a distant sense of the touch...
the feel...
so too these sprouts!
these flowers...
these petals would wilt
this beauty would be gone into the the fading sun!

Your use of melons sent my mind reeling. This is a great question. All would come to an end. Is it therefore worth the strife, the envy, the hatred and all?
