Gothic Lotus

Flowers left out to decay
Black frost on from yesterday

Growing in forgotten dirt
Lotuses in letters flirt

At a final resting place

Mound of Venus
Flower phoenix

Petals set aflame

Tribute in a graveyard
Vases shattered apart

Lotus bloom in marshy roots
Planted among quondam soot

Memoir rekindled

Fragrance of a gothic lotus
Bouquet left as magnum opus

Reanimating essence
Mnemic presence

Is what its soul is

A drop dead gorgeous
Gothic lotus
