Living Lilac

Written 8/28/10:

The sun shines

on the light color purple

as the lilacs move with the wind.

What does it mean to be a lilac?

to be recognized by your color,

the vast purple, and the smell,

so familiar and yet so

beautiful and sweet.

To live peacefully,

only to be gawked at, taken away,

to grow and die, to come back

when the weather is nice,

to sleep away the winters.

The smell of sweetness,

flash our pretty purple color

to the Bees,

and then to disappear.
