To blossom
Or lose control
Inward or outward
Its pressure seeks release
Destruction and becoming
As part of an endless process
Each glowing petal will one day fall
A cycle of beginnings and endings

Each faded flower nourishes the earth
As tearful clouds fill an upturned cup
Teaching the steps of Nature’s dance
To all who pause to listen
The spiral dance wends on
Trailing in its wake
A renewal
A rebirth
New life

  2. really, it’s time for nature to heal itself. We have took a lot, it’s obvious to keep the balance, nice poetic ways to describe that. πŸ™πŸ’•β£οΈ

    Within the week the tulips opened and most are now (with the winds of the last several days) gone…The tulip trees and Dogwoods try to hold onto their petals yet the streets are lined with their soft pinkness…

    Lovely verse. Spring is an odd one here this year. As the contrasting headlines in bold blackness state more rules of separation.
