Poem of the Week: Autumn Dance

Patricia Dennis
Santa Clara, N. California Branch

A gust of wind

The soft swirl of leaves
Autumn red and gold

Turning

Whirling

Swirling

So gracefully through the air

Thoughts of landing

But knowing not where

Then one special moment

Upon the earth they have fallen

A few seconds of time
And then

A gust of wind

The soft swirl of leaves

Continually floating

  3. Your piece had such movement to it. I could really feel each word. Enjoyed it. Dorothy Atkins, your Santa Clara County Br.
