petals falling

One by one
Petals fall.

Fall through water
Fall through air
Burning in fire
Twirling 'till it hits the ground.

In the water
Floating and floating
Sailing across
Waters open.

In the air
Ascending and diving
Dancing with the wind.

In the fire
Singeing black
Burning quietly
To ashes grey.

On the ground
Ashes dead
Pile is blown away.

Ashes settle
From the sky rain starts to pour
The petals are no more.
