The Day My Over Watered Flowers Died

Written by Lilith Raymour

Finally
A sunny day
After way too much rain
For my flower garden
Near a phone line…

The phone rang
The sound of rain pouring
Over the earpiece
Hung up

Sunny day

The phone rang
Answered
But only heard
More rain
Hung up

Sunny day?

Went to look
Storm clouds
Then rain poured
Phone rang

Flowers
Over the phone
As they died
Cried…

We tried to warn you
