Shadorma: Brief Sojourn



-By Linda Lee Lyberg

As the rose
languishes towards
death, petals

fall, drifting
like years of our brief sojourn
on the mortal path


Linda Lee Lyberg

Author’s Note: I have roses and mortality on my mind today. My mother’s birthday is coming up soon, and roses were her favorite flower. 

Day 19 of Shadorma November
