Claire A., Pleasanton, CA By Claire_A, Pleasanton, CA

Like a flower soaked with sunlight
Like a dog
Who has run, run, run...
The flower is defeated.
The dog is exhausted.
The life in them is dying.

Like a sapling streaked with striking winds
Like a colt
Whose spindly legs cannot support him...
The sapling is too small and weather-beaten.
The colt is too young.
The strength in them is weakening.

Like a dandelion brushed with breeze
Like a spider
Whose tiny babies skitter off
While it can only die,
In faded strands of fragile web
