Broken Flower and a Little Birdy

Tenderness

Lisa Cox

A Petal
Is falling
Like a rain drop
Will you catch it
Or let it drop
Discarded?
One petal lost
Is no loss
For this flower
Yet they continue
To fall,
Why do you shake
The flower so,
Petals falling
Each one
Irreplaceable
Each bringing the
Flower closer
To that point
When it no
Longer flowers
Do not pluck
Do not pluck
Gather the petals
Even parted from
The flower
They cling to beauty
You are ripping
please do
not rip and pull
You must not
Rip the head
From the flower
You must not
Please no
The leaves
Are scattered
The flower
The flower
Is falling
It
No longer
Flowers
Go
There is nothing
Left to deflower

Now for Some Birdy
