Story of a Neglected Flower

Dead Rose and the Storm by George Hodan

Over the years 
her petals fell away 
in soft crimson drops 
on weathered hardwood. 
She wilted under his care, 
years of drought 
and angry heat 
leaving her parched, 
craving tender warmth 
and gentle rains. 
She faded, 
branches withering 
until little remained 
except a dormant dream 
rooted in hope 
that one day 
she might bloom again.
