Third Place Poem, “Remembrance”

Spring 2024 Multi-Media Contest

Remembrance

Fainted pink blooms sprout from the ground, 

Obfuscated by azure blue’s kiss in maturity, 

Reinvigorated and 

Growing taller and taller, they whisper, Forget me not. 

Evangelistically, sowing their seed and mothering

The next generation of blooming blue buds. And then

 

Megalomania reigns—the indomitable human soul conquers, and devours what is not theirs. 

Everything in its path destroyed; an industrial age arrives. 

 

Nothing else remains but the desecrated land 

On which the little flower used to live. 

To eternity, as gusts of wind take its petals away, it still whispers like a prayer: 

 

Forget me not. Forget me not. Forget me not.
