A Bed Of Petals

A Bed Of Petals Upon a bed of petals the sunshine rests Showing beauty left over from a season’s best Colors all spread into a delicate display Onto soiled ground that once nursed their seeds on their way… Upon a bed of petals the wind begins to sway Reminding them of their next place as it carries them away Their days of blossom have all come to an end Memories of their presence wilt within their trail once again… A season is soon replaced by autumn leaves that cascade down Upon a bed of petals that used to be found Still, when the wind blows softly onto that certain place Somehow it brings back colors of their trace…

    This is quite the special and wondrous write my friend! You have created a splendid poem, one of tremendous beauty! I loved how the petals moved about and showered other areas with their gorgeousness, to be revealed even in some bouts of wind, Great Work!!
