Rocky Cliff

I climbed a rocky cliff
failing to use
common sense.
The rocks crumbling
below my feet
causing an avalanche
type effect.
My friend safely
on the ground
now has danger
approaching furiously.
If only I had applied
common sense
before climbing
a rocky cliff.

Is this literal or figurative? Either way, I picture it. I like this one, it can mean different things.

lostboy: This is figurative. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Lost Dreamer...this is well written, but I truly hope it isn't in regards to last nights conversation. As I said, please do not be concerned...you did nothing.
Hugs

Even without knowing details, it is a good poem, dreamer. Unintentional actions can cause unintentional harm for sure.
