Pièce de resistance

Pièce de resistance

How we bring beauty
     into our lives
these tulips
     yellow and purple
with their long green
     leaves and stems
a beauty grown
     out of the the earth
brought into the home
     to embellish the day
and as the days pass
     their beauty will
slowly fade
     and they will be
returned to the earth :
     the pursuit of beauty
may be forever but
     only love can resist
the passing of time
     only love
