Glorious beauty is a fading flower...Isaiah 28: 1

Drifting into a deep sleep
To wrap its petals tight.
In the warm sun it does speak,
Loud enough for us to hear...
When "two-lips" opened to the light.
It was soon gone until next year
Fading away into the night...
Poetry by me AJP

I shot this earlier in May of this year of the red tulip before it opened.

Please view in light box! Thank you!
