Magnolia Never More

the magnolia branch
is blooming
it has been
for over a week now
and it will
for another

one after one
furry buds open
they blossom
show their purple
and the white inside

and one after one after one
and way too quick
petals lose their shine
and start to hang

toc

one day bloom
one day hang
one day fall

everyday
I clean them up
the dried out petals
of the magnolia branch

I hear them falling
one after one after one
during the day

this was supposed to be
a happy thing
a blooming branch
flowers on wood
like spring
but inside

toc

never has death
overcome new life
so quickly
and so definitively

this was supposed to be
a happy thing
