death of a flower

and then the flower
finds life leave her
as time lays claim
to her being
so she exhales
a fragrance
urgent and keen
her breath content
a message on the windletters in a bottle
will find a shore
but her notes of light
will remain scattered
whiffs of longing
forever silent
like wings of a butterfly
that flutter no more
for their song is spent
