Dead Flowers

I'm doing a haiku today. It came to me in an interesting way. I was pondering  the need I have to improve my family life. I'm still gnawing on the answer I got.

Throw away dead flow'rs, He said
Now you may start fresh

Okay we're also supposed to do a pyramid poem today. So I thought it would be interesting to make my haiku a pyramid poem as well. If you want to know about pyramid poems, go here.
