Transient Flame

For Steve

all flesh is grass

Transient Flame


How time flies;

Like birds and bees

Transient nectar

Deciduous trees


How leaves fall;

Like stars in sky

Meandering streams

Passers by


How oceans flow;

Like blood in veins

Wind over mountains

Bloom strewn plains


How life flames;

Like a fire fly

Light in the shadows

New born cry
