The Death of a summer flower by Christopher Hopkins

the death of a summer flower

carcass of the honeysuckle across the lawn
the scented tears
will be lift from their cheeks
in the path of the coming sun

the birds and trees still dazed from
elbow and fist
of untimely skies
of the rough grey hands
of gods
