Asphodel

An asphodel is a flower of death
with grey leaves and sickly yellow leaves
and a scent that clings
no matter how hard you wash your clothes.

An asphodel is not a rose,
it holds neither beauty nor charm.
Instead it shows you
the bitter truth of life.

An asphodel signifies

PROMPT: Flashlight

A day consists of 24 hours,
starting from the golden drops of sunlight pouring
