Spinning
 1
In the tall grass
 2
Flying
 3
Stairing up at the sun
 4
Softly reclined within the few clouds
 5
With a blue flannel sheet
 6
 
 
Visions of life flow
 7
Through the slight rose tint
 8
The sun has burned on my iris
 9
 
 
The warmth
 10
 
 
The beauty
 11
 
 
I begin to spin again
 12
Swift
 13
A dervish
 14
Clutching my being in my right palm
 15
 
 
My momentum builds
 16
I sight my taget
 17
On my final aproach
 18
The final rotation
 19
I release
 20
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So high it rises
 21
Directly into the light
 22
I keep spinning
 23
Expecting it to land home
 24
 
 
Thats when I hear the tink
 25
Telling me It landed in the street
 26
I could never understand how it could fly so wide
 27
I stared in confusion
 28
As the rose becomes green
 29
And falls back to the grass
 30
That I find was always brown

I love it it states so perfectly how when your goal is one objective that is all you care about and when you fail in the pursuit of that goal all the joy you felt is blanketed by truth I think the poem deserves a 7 but I personally think it's a 10 so 9 it is
