Dahlias: long faded and gone, still remembered.
Echinacea roots: now pressed into tonic.
Sunflower seeds: birdfood
Ironically favored by squirrels.
Dried lavender: sacheted, essentially oiled,
Enjoyed dashed in exotic dishes.
Roses: turned everlasting by
Artists using brushes and oils,
Tinted glass stained for glory, and the
Ultimate tribute —
Metals sculpted into forever thorns and petals.
Written for Friday Flash 55 - My post in exactly 55 words - for the G-Man.
