#SIWOPC:SIWO International Poetry Contest Do not turn away

As the leaves ruffled,
Whispering gently,
The verdant canopy,
And dancing trellis,
They waltzed,
A symphony divine.
And a lone blossom,
It fell down.
The fragile bud,
Fragmented now,
Staring balefully at the branch,
That it crowned,
And that danced now with gusto!
I picked up the bud,
Caressing its petals,
Rich in hues,
Lush with fragrance,
And put it in the leaves of my book.
Aeons passed,
I forgot it and the day.
And one day,
I turned the pages,
And there it was.
Dried now,
Colours faded,
But leaving a trellis of hues,
Infusing a luscious fragrance,
Those pages now embossed and infused.
And the tiny bud,
It told me a tale,
Do not turn away from life,
For every fall shows you the way,
Way to things galore,
And world afar.
The brave blossom,
It slept in dark confines,
Sharing its love.
It told me a tale.
Do not turn away from night,
For when shadows die,
Incandescent stars emerge,
Lightening up the obsidian skies.
