last embrace (tanka)

[…] “These flowers, which were splendid and sprightly, waking in the dawn of the morning, in the evening will be a pitiful frivolity, sleeping in the cold night’s arms.” […] Pedro Calderon de la Barca.

new dawn
in its splendour
blossoms
fading light hurries life
nighttime’s last embrace
