#NaPoWriMo Day 16

in bloom

for my brother

I just wanted you
to smell the flowers
with me
they were glorious
i brought them home
carefully wrapped
like a new child
i carefully clipped the ribbon at the base
and i put them in a vase
and they were absolutely stunning
you would have loved them
every corner of the house filled with the scent
i put my nose in the edges crevice of the house

the walls
a moment of meditation
to breathe this scent
i ended up crying
because you are not here with me
to smell the flowers
but you reminded me
that it was always you
in the room

Sharing is caring!
