I feel like a brilliantly colored leaf letting loose in the air,
Floating to the ground all bare
A lone red leaf who let go to soon
Who did not know what to dream
Who did not know how to dare.
I settled on the forest floor
In a heap of leaves turned brown and wet.
I look up at the sun in the sky
And see the brilliance of the blue dotted with white clouds
My dreams dancing in the air
I snatch at them, grab hold
The wind lifts me into adventures bold
I wrote this poem last year as I experienced autumn. I found it hiding in my draft files. Today, I decided to share. I hope you enjoy it along with my photograph that inspired it. We are still awaiting fall colors in our area. We have had the first fall-like weather with cooler evenings and days, but summer rebounds this weekend.
How is the fall in you area? Have you seen pretty fall foliage yet?
