DAILY POEM "TO DIE AND LIVE AGAIN"



Delicate flowers
swaying freely
amid a windy backdrop
slight protection
behind a broken wall
being saved by stone
sunshine opening buds
swollen by the heat
desperate to bloom
petals still strong
newly formed.



Morning dew evident
now splattered on the wall
flowers now grouped
feeling stronger in numbers
wind dying down
aroma in the air
flowers now still
content, happy
closing for the night
ready to face
another day.

Birds pecking at petals
bees buzzing around pollen
flowers dying down
turning brown
determined to grow again
seeds carried for miles
by hungry birds
or blown by the wind
landing in another place
sheltered,protected
Spring comes again
flowers now in growth
spreading more joy
cascading colors
beauty beyond scope
in an empty space
now filled with brightness
admired by passers by.

Isn't nature wonderful, the winds blow seeds everywhere, they settle and grow, die then are reborn again, somewhere else, just like life..:)

  2. there is a good reason
    for each season,

    determined to grow again
    seeds carried for miles
    by hungry birds
    or blown by the wind
    landing in another place
    sheltered,protected
    Spring comes again

    what magical and beautiful shift in season,
    your words paint the picture of it very perfectly!

    Happy Spring!
    Happy Rally!
    you are the perfect poet!
