A Cycle

Poem By Wandering Scarlet

day in
day out
the sun rises, as the moon falls
just as a new life is brought in
an old one is taken out
its a cycle of life
its a cycle of day and night
we must live each day to its fullest
as shall we live our entire lives
celebrate the time between rise and fall
this is when we can make the difference...

This poem is simple. It is also prosaic. That is because it has no rhythm. It sounds like you are just talking, explaining, but not poetically. Even free verse must have a little music to it. If it does, it will touch you - that is the test of a good poem.
'...time between rise and fall...' More power to you, Scarlet!
