Fallen Petals

Contributed by softerware on Friday, 22nd March 2019 @ 07:03:57 AM in AEST
Topic: poets

The author tills for thoughts entombed;
The readers walk amongst the blooms.

Too soon revealed to reach their prime.
Petals shed on shattered rhyme.
Rushed to show, before their time.

You have one poetic soul my friend. I absolutely love this! For some reason I feel a taste of sadness in your words. I don/'/t know it you meant for that effect or not but I feel it just the same.

Excellent writing my friend
Very well done

An interesting observational flower of a poem. I like it very much. It bears reading several time, at very least.

Poetry is magic. Thank you.

the truth after all the growing has dwindled
is in the beauty of writing it down for others
to read.

The prime, is nowhere at no time more perfectly defined
as now.
any time you remind us, any one of us, and all of us
Well said SW. You provoke the positive in all of us.
Thank you!

Great metaphors even though I`m not sure what it all means but it seemed sad.

I have read many a poem that I didn`t quite understand but enjoyed them nonetheless. This is another one.

As always, thank you.

Ive been guilty of picking the buds of thought
before they have a chance to bloom. As well as
watering them too much with the pursuit of
perfection and killing the thought. It takes a special
kind of person to be a true poet; someone that in
just a few words can tell a story. Just in the same
right that it takes a special kind of person to be a
novelist being able to stretch an idea to fill 100/'/s
of pages. BRAVO!

I definitely have struggled with spontaneity vs nourishing a poem, pruning, cultivating it until I think it is the best it can be. Great metaphor this.Well done!
