    Very sad poem. The deep sadness comes through in your words.

    They wither and fall, drifting to the floor
    The beautiful colours are now nevermore
    Floating to the ground in a pile so neat
    The signal the end of a life pure and sweet

    These lines are heart wrenching.
    Excellent job!
    Missed you glad to see you back :)
    Love Cindy

    Gem girl what an amazing piece !

    However, this has many different meanings so interpret at will...)
    At first I interpreted it one way then I saw a whole different meaning behind it. It may be short but it sure packs a lot of punch and make one sit back and really think.

    Glad to see ya back writing again Gem

    A VERY touching piece of poetry. i really liked this stanza the best

    "Light coral pinks and dark cornflower blues
    Dark olive greens and some pale honeydews
    All of them wilted, misplacing their shine
    Losing the battle and race against time"

    beautifully written!

    i wish i could come up with something like this when i have writes block

    "The signal the end of a life pure and sweet"

    That is my favorite line. Has an innocence about it. Maybe an innocent life now gone. I thought it was a truely beautiful piece. I really enjoyed reading that one. (5/5). Take care.

    This is so beautifully written.
    I loved the imagery you portrayed in this, it left lasting vivid images in my mind, flow was good throughout and as always you managed to pull of a stunning ending.

    Enchanting. I liked the seeming plaintive ambiance throughout this piece. It induces a sense of melancholy and sorrow inside of me - I'm certain of it.

    "All of them wilted, misplacing their shine
    Losing the battle and race against time"

    With this couplet, you've managed to say volumes of meanings. How unnaturally natural the cycle of life by way of time and space can also be naturally unnatural. Hm.

    It's a very poignant work, m'dear. Glad to see you posting once again! It's a delight to read, indeed! Keep on writing what you feel and like. all the best and take care. ~Debbie
