#NaPoWriMo #16-Tributes

False color tributes to our dead
Sparkle in dappled sunlight as
Their bodies liquify in sealed casements

Frayed fabric blooms stray with the swift prairie wind
Decorating the tree-lined field like Christmas in April
Poinsettia red and rosy orange

Faded remnants twist on plastic sticks
Beside engraved granite markers
Bearing witness to the inevitable end

Ashes to Ashes

Dust to Dust

Water to Water

Plastic to Plasticcemetary S. Halawy
