Limonium Flower

By: Martin Jee | Posted on: January 14, 2018 

Flowers dry

out and

rot

like the roses we sent for

our grandmother’s birthday,

like the cherry blossoms that

fall from the

spring trees, like snow.

But the limonium flower

begins and ends life dry

and so will never die.

The shriveled, purple starry clump

that never experienced life.
