Former Glory

Droopy flower
long past best before date
lifts her weary head
toward soft light of
eastern sky

Faded pink petals rise
display hint of past glory
flower head seems too large
for fragile stem
struggling to uphold
emboldened blossom

Curly leaves
weak, flaccid
ripple gently
join the dawn salute
wave their approval
