Breaking Ground

Planting seeds after soil is turned Producing beautiful flowers
Picked for many reasons
from the Earth
With the passing of a loved one. At a funeral
We beautify the presence of a loved one
With many colors so bright
Those beautiful flowers
Handpicked because of their plight
Then back to the Earth they go
as a casket goes down
But many loved ones keep one
to keep their memory sound
Placed on the Shelf
or in a little box
Sometimes encased in glass
the beauty remains
of their loved one.
