Old Bachelor

once it was vibrant
      (not so long ago)

   colours will fade
as our world turns
      slowly slowly 

and has done for
   a very long time


sometimes we need
   to see our shadows

after those colours
   have faded away


      drooping petals 
ready (almost) to fall

we watch summer
   rolling in warmer


what meaning is there
   in fading flower faces


shapes have lasted
      though so much
colour has faded

   we all fade away
