soft petals ushering in a new season
I wonder how long until they fall
my heart beats to a new rhythm
thirsty for a kiss from flowing waters
blue herons cradle in the tall pines
dragons guard the portal to the stars
life is a journey to find understanding
balance is the key to true happiness
Winding River - Du Fu
Each piece of flying blossom leaves spring the less,
I grieve as myriad points float in the wind.
I watch the last ones move before my eyes,
And cannot have enough wine pass my lips.
Kingfishers nest by the little hall on the river,
Unicorns lie at the high tomb’s enclosure.
Having studied the world, one must seek joy,
For what use is the trap of passing honour?“

given poems in the prompt and give our own
I didn't use the full form but, I did go 8 lines
with 7 words. Sometimes, I break the rules.
