I have a place in my backyard, That I call my plant graveyard. These are all plants that I tended with care, Now like a rejected lover, they sit in despair. They go to the plant graveyard when all hope is gone, But I still water them until they pass on. Once in a while a miracle will transpire, And it will return to the porch for all to admire. 6/26/16 Contest-Take the Dagger From My Heart Please-2 Contest Sponsor: Broken Wings Awarded 2nd Place

I don't ever read other people's poetry but this was truly amazing. I would appreciate some criticism from you on my pieces and guidance on where I can get better. Thank you for your amazing poem

Thank you Broken Wings. I have a huge pot of red geraniums that has bloomed all summer. About a month ago it stopped blooming and I had about given it up for dead. I gave it some extra attention, and now it has decided not to pass on and is flourishing. :)
