Statuesque

Silhouette_2_by_hermanmunsterWe are beautiful creatures
Hollowed out for show
Placed on pedestals
Paraded by windows in fall
Put in boxes come winter
Waiting for spring
Pleasant to the sight
Empty of emotion
Painted in shades of gray
So close to the black
Perfect for a day
Then left in shadow
The consummate trade-off
Wanton in its disregard
Yet valued by many
Who seek forever
But settle for today.
