Visual Poetry #18 (And They Were Gone)

…i was sad when i took this picture…these flowers…they silently witnessed a debilitating illness, pain, suffering, struggles, anxiety…and then hope, faith and joy…then of sadness, grief and sorrow…these flowers are now gone into the ultimate silence and stillness…good thing i photographed them for the last time…because every time i looked at the image, i am reminded of joyful as well as sad moments…and i will still be longing with pain in my heart…i know that…and the night will grow deeper and longer…and i will watch the moon silently…alone…somewhere, in the heart of the night, tears flow without end…
