I watched a leaf float from a tree,
no breeze to guide its path,
it flew as delicately as a flake of snow,
undetermined where to go,
landing here on branches, there buoyed up,
its ariel shape,
its colour brown and pale,
and with its gentle dance
my thoughts began to meditate
on autumn's quiet expressions,
their subtle grace;
it landed with a little sound,
a full stop as it found its place
among its colleagues on the ground.

I hope the meditation carried on to where you wanted to be.
I thought this a lovely journey thought it lasted so short a while.
Have a lovely night and I hope all your tomorrows will be filled.
Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Beatiful journey reading your poem and picturing the leaf as it fell. Love Roscoe...

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.

Lovely imagery! So peaceful - this truly captures the beauty of autumn.
