Whispers on the Wind

Can you hear the whispers of the wind?
Memories of a forgotten day,
The shadows of a lonely night,
As the sun slowly fades away.

Hallowed Ground

Where, oh death, is thy sting?

Gone is the laughter
Of children’s play
Who quietly slumber
Before a brand-new day

Out comes...

I've written several poems about roses. This one feels far more meaningful to me. Sadly, death and roses are forever and inextricably intertwined.
