Poem - Dancing Leaves

Updated on December 27, 2012

dancing leaves in a grand waltz wind

little vortices of symmetry

sway my way

as I escape the mundane world

along an October path of yellows and browns

I am lost in the hypnotic swirl of colour

the green of the leaf sacrificed
to the march of autumn gold

==============================================================

it's a short poem chaps, what much more can I do about that and I see I have lost comments that were previously made on this hub. :-(

      thanks very much for the comment Beth... I can still this in my minds eye, sometimes within the words is a scene that one can come back to :-)

      Fluid with motion and imagery -- it has brought me right back to hiking in the mountains this past fall. Brilliant!

      Drax...I live amongst 13 acres of woods...I can only add that when those leaves dance, my cats are wonderfully fun to watch...and it makes me happy...great memories you've brought!
