Welcome to my blog. Here I discuss my life experiences and the fascinating people I meet along the way. I also document my adventures in writing, reading, and cooking. Hope you have a nice stay!

Turning Tree

Turning Tree

As I passed a turning tree today, a 

Flutter of color caught my eye. A bright, 

Golden aura-bordered leaf somersaulted 

Gracefully through the branches, down 

To the wet street and into my heart.


My veins picked up the roll and tumble.

My head rushed and warmed to the glow 

Of color radiating all the brighter on the 

Shinny black top that held this delicate, 

Single-winged creature of autumn.


As I reached for it, the wind plucked

It from the street and from my breast,

Tossing and tumbling it toward space,

Till my heart was tethered by a thread

So tight it snapped and I fell back to earth.
