    Here's a poem.

    The tree –
    It grows high
    In the sky,
    Yet its progress
    Dies.
    People say,
    “Why –
    Must a tree
    Cease its growth,
    And then decay?”

    The Eagle replies,
    “I too can’t
    Touch heaven,
    Or reach the sun.”

    Quietly Man whispers,
    “Nor can I.”

    My Entry (Sorry about the earlier one).

    I know one of perfect soul,
    one to cherish and one to hold.
    One of beauty rare of sight –
    so her beauty shines out the light.

    Yet she is taken and bound to man –
    your wasted love, like water on sand.
    And so these bleeding hearts of ours
    do shatter at the very sound –
    of angel's flight 'pon heavenly wing
    with words of old, new to bring.

    You hear talk upon the round
    of those who seek heaven bound
    and those who are but mortal coil
    built of sin and sweat and toil.

    But there is one above them all
    who sings as such to sooth the soul.
    Angel above these ice’d cold nights
    speaking songs to our respite.

    A beauty such of no compare
    her hair gold her skin fair.
    Once upon I saw her sight
    of angel’s shadow burning bright.

    But fly unto untimely rest
    for she is taken at his behest.
    Though 'oer their heart bleeds blood of stone
    the sin of love has thus been sown.

    And so to speak – even ‘oer her name,
    Is thus the world to defame…

    I skimmed it, so forgive me If i'm wrong, but where do you reference to plants in any way?

    Regardless, really nice poem.

    Sorry guys, I didn't update the entry lists earlier. I was inactive for a while because I was busy making up my map.

    Anyways, there are only a few days left, for those willing, now is the chance to submit your entries. I'll be back soon.

    I'm not gonna make this contest. I didnt read the 1st post entirely and wrote my McCain poem without realizing that your poem had to be about plants.

    MY POEM
    I’m standing before the brightest spring,
    With brand new colours I’ve never seen,
    The trees are barking and the snails sing.

    A funny hat and a body, oh, so slim,
    I can’t see her face, my vision is dim,
    She dress in my breath and I spread my wings,

    I soar into the sky; I’m here in between,
    I see a big bright beautiful world, filled with happy things
    But now I must land and say good-bye to the spring

    Now I’m back in my darkness, abandoned by the feeling
    She’s gone with the wind, left my heart broken and bleeding…
