A Journey to Die For

There goes another flower
Falling to the ground
Swiftly swaying in the air
Swaying without a sound

Poor little guy
So alone on this journey
Traveling with the wind
The wind that is churning

As the rough current continues
The little flower dies
Not enough water on his journey
The journey that took his life.

This poem is enchanting! I have never heard anything like it, and while it is beautiful, it is also sad. Nice job!!!!

I love this poem! It's so dramatic and the imagery is great. Great job, the metaphor hidden in it is very good.
