Kaleidoscope


envious of your ability
to dance with wild abandon
dressed in a kaleidoscope of color
for muted was never your style
winds breath upon your nape
as you twirl and whirl
                                  unfurl
                                          then curl
your color only fading as you dip
upon hearing the final curtain call

  15. how beautifully your poem breathes the story of leaf's autumnal journey - the freedom to be who one is, right up until the final curtain... so much we as humans could learn from that wild abandon, if we chose

    gorgeous photo too

  19. We all have our reasons to be envious of the leaf, even in such a situation it is floating and not sunk:)

  20. Oh my gosh, this image! So delicate, the colours, and that delightful little curl at the top of the leaf. Just exquisite, my friend.
