Shower Tree

April 8, 2010
Flowers bloom in the middle of May

Just to die in late December

No matter what you do or say

They shall be doused like water on hot embers

Into the darkness

Into the night

Here there is no best

In this place that knows no light

Relinquish the thoughts from your head
Let go of flowers dying

Of loved ones already dead

There is no use in trying

To take back what was once said

Bang, Pow, Boom
Wars of life going on

Flowers fall in the gloom

Never again to see the dawn

Yellow flowers swept

Torn from dying trees
Never to be kept

Never to be seen

This is great... for the most part. Why in the world didn't you cut that fourth stanza out? Because, you are right, it's kind of the eyesore of the poem, you know? (Not meaning to rub salt in the wound or anything.) Still, very good poem... The flow was a lot better in this one than the one I just read.


Hey, could you read some of my work and tell me what you think???
