The Flower Weeps

The Flower Weeps

A Poem by J.R Schlievert

thank you for reading :)


A petal of a flower gently hit the grassy ground below. 
Its silky, velvety fabric floats so carelessly in the breeze 
As it contacts the ground, it imprints its self in the gentle, sponge like grass  
Where it sits forever, until a force of wind sweeps it off for a ride to the unknown 
The flower cries of the pour little petal 
Like a mother of a missing child 
The flower cannot do anything 
Its helpless 
As the petal rides, the world seems to be more open to it 
The vast landscape of the meadows 
Hill enshrouded with a green coat 
Trees as tall as the white mountains in the great distance 
The petal is also watching the birds flying and talking in the everlasting sun 
One bird swoops down and catches the pedal in its hard beak 
The bird flies in the other direction of the chilly wind 
And places the petal next to the weeping flower 
The flower is forever grateful to the little blue bird 
The brilliant orange color of the flower turned even brighter 
And now, the bird sits next to the flower 
Until the last grain of sand form the big hourglass in the sky is left
