Flower Petals in the Wind

Though it seems like petals fell by the wind But actually the flower pushed them out One by one they would fall from the flower But somehow the wind seemed to know no doubt Soon as the petals came loose the wind blew Carried them far in the air, so privileged But the flower held firm to those last few It wasn’t letting the wind gain leverage But as the petals came loose, and wind blows Petals would dance a special loving dance Sometimes two would intertwine twice as strong Flowing was second nature like a trance Powers of the flower outweigh the wind But the petals when free get a joy ride No matter the petal, wind will get you Free to flow down, nature you must abide

    Dear Russell, a beautiful image. I love the flowers pushing out the old. I call it healing at the end. I see why your poem is on the number one spot. I have fallen in love with the way you gave life to the wind in your poem. Congratulations with this lovely dance in which plays in slow motion against the wind. Everything falls and subsides on natures ground. Lovely~ LINDA
