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. :-(

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