    dotsWhen the flower diesdots

    My love have you ever noticed, when the spring comes you smile.
    My love, have you ever noticed, that when you smile the roses bloom.
    My love, have you ever seen, the beauty you leave in your wake.
    My love, can't you feel, the beating in your chest.

    I have wondered what you think, when you stare off into the rain.
    I have wondered what you feel when you watch the weather grow cold.
    I used to want to reach out when I see you sigh in the frost.
    But now I know I can't help you, because the flower always dies.

    The garden you planted, all those years ago.
    No longer has the flower from then and it feels very cold.
    The frost is laying permently on the ground
    And I can never bring the warmth back.

    But I still wonder what you think when the rain starts to fall.
    I hope that your heart still beats, when the weather turn to cold.
    I see you sighing in the frost covered ground
    However I know, now, that you are just waiting for the flower to die.

      "Hello Li, I voted a four on your poem (When The Flower Dies) not for technical reasons but because it has a distinct esoteric feel to it. I hope you don't take offence if I say 'a re-write is neccessary' because you really have something worthwhile here. You might also consider improving the mechanics of your work e.g. My love have you ever noticed,
    when the spring comes you smile, etc. etc.
    Same words but looks better on a page. Don't give up on this one, it's a winner...------Mugsy-----

      I really have mixed feelings about this piece- On one hand I want to love it, on the other I want to hate it. However, I believe since I can't decide I must love it. i loved your ponderings and how you used repitition in the first two stanzas but didn't commit yourself to it for the remainder of your poem. This seemed to be an effortless shift, and was well accomplished. So overall, I would have to say I liked it, and appreciate this work. Keep up the good work; come by and commment some of my work sometime.
