This work has reached the exceptional level
putting on a show

dancing petals

by Bichon

the flowers dance
freely in the wind,
petals swirling
while stalks shimmer
like limbs

i watch them with joy,
wondering what
compels them
to put on such a show
for me

but as i gently reach out
to place a finger
on a softly velvet petal,
the dancing stops
and the only sound
remaining is the silence


many of our flowers are dying now that the weather edges away from warm. it has been very unpredictable the past few days with a few storms. so this is just a free verse to say goodbye to those flowers, see ya next year!

i officially start my second year of college next year, and guess what? i will finally be in person for lectures! i cannot wait, even though i will get lost a bunch of times. it will be fun! my driving lessons are also going very well, i am halfway through them, woohoo! sending some positive vibes to all of you guys too.
