Watching Leaves Fall

17 Oct

Twirl and spin
like a little girl
showcasing her finest Easter dress.

Float in an ever so deliberative way,
defying time and gravity’s pull,
on your way to the ground.

Dart like a missile
zeroing in
on its target.

Noiseless you fall
absorbed into an ocean of predecessors
filling the forest’s floor.

Your journey undetected
by all but the most watchful eye
taking care to notice your descent.

Sturdy Giant

17 Aug

Your skin rough, like a sea-hardened sailor.
Endlessly you reach for the sky, soaring the heights.
Your fingers firmly anchored to the earth,
snaking their way deep into the ground below.

Your grandeur and majesty beyond comparison,
nothing dares challenge your sovereign reign.
Alone you take your stand, outshining your diminutive peers
gazing at you in silent reverence.

You immovable giant, whose poised strength
wins the admiration of all who look upon you.
In quiet beauty you rule earth and sky.
