Life For Death - Poem by Min Sia

A newly born flower
Slowly blowing her horn
Fresh grasses all over
Smiling on its thorns

Breeze dancing
Moist climbing
Trunks twisting
Leaves flying

The majestic flower
Now walking through mountains
Of darkest trunks whispering
Of bloody leaves haunting

Passing through the pavement
Blear eyes on strength
Largest trees on coven
Fangs of leaves on vent

Her breath on every fight
Burning with her own light
Searching the truth inclined
The strength behind enemy lines

But they have covered the night
They have killed the knight
Bless the flower tonight
She had made her last sacrifice

    This life is like that as we see it with a human eye.. But did you ask the flower, how she feels about this life... You have beautifully touched a very sensitive subject with sincerity and purity of your thought... A beautiful write indeed... (Report) Reply

    Is life made as
    fodder for death
    that it devour both
    small and great.
    Good images.

    will be reborn...if the sacrifice was for a noble cause...crusifications haven't stopped yet...thoughts weird but they converge on a central point; Faith...impressive write 10 (Report) Reply

    Inception of the idea is simply great. Depiction of a flower as a knight, positioning two binary opposites is a rare gem. Portrayal of the poem is a surreal marvel.

    Great work Min. (Report) Reply
