Falling Leaves


Falling Leaves


We fall like leaves touched by winter

chasing summery dreams,

sliding on fleeting illusions of love

and life among other things.

We glide with grace

towards the comforting ground

accepting a passing of seasons.

And in the midst of our fall

tempting our will to embrace

and hold on to eternal summer

as we helplessly fall

like leaves touched by winter-

“Hair is gray and the firers are burning. So many dreams on the shelf. You say I wanted you to be proud of me. I always wanted that myself.”

to travel far,

and let your love arise

across the bluest skies

transcending who you are,

a creature made of light

steady shining bright

above the brightest star-

She glows like the summer sun,

And she generously leaves a trace of shine behind,

For those who have none”

― Charmaine J Forde
