Flower Still-Life

Lisa Cox

Beyond our memory
Beauty faded
No digital
Capture
Fragile
Fleeting
Flowing into
Time
Only grand masters
Captured beauty
In stone
On canvas
Scratched onto
Cave walls
With a brush
Pulling beauty
From thin air
Living
Not frozen
Speaking across
Centuries
Each jewel
Worth more
Than a snap
Representing imagination
Made real
