Fading Colours

only a day ago 
or so, a little colour 

still remained
on her hydrangeas.

but colours fade, 
even as we watch.


we realise how 
we are fading too,

how nothing 
lasts forever,
not even smiles.


time and 
temperature

surprise us
every year.

we're never ready.

again the cold
comes close


and colours fade,

it happens each
and every year

cold and colder.
