Lilacs

It was nice to have the lilacs today

The blossoms tinting the sunlight mauve
The lavender hue overlaid by silver

Something always overlays the color
Eventually

The air is heavy, laden with fragrance

A good reason to move slowly

Struggling to pass through that atmosphere
To reach escape velocity from here

And now

It was nice to have the lilacs now

Later it will be terrible

That smell will weigh so heavily
Tarnished with memory

Lilacs will never again be light
Or sweet

But it’s nice to have the lilacs now

[I just felt like writing, I have no cause to hate lilacs]
