April Rain

                                                          Rain
                                                       drops of 
                                                   diamonds fall
                                                   on April days
                                   landing on the petals of red daisy's 
                               sinking into the earth to start new seeds
                                                     for a season
                                                     that begins
                                                         with a
                                                           kiss.

    Michael! Read about this form and my brain started to shut down--will not try anytime soon. Obviously, however, you have mastered it and magic happened at the same time--you could have written "Shape" for the form because it looks like a diamond ring! So often the simplest says the most in more ways. Thanks, Craig (Congrats)

    The way you combined the stone and the flower flows together so beautifully. This is great. Love, Kim PS I think there is a typo on "pedals" should be "petals" Best wishes in the contest.
