fall-leaves-1010579_1920

Autumn leaves twirl dreamily round in the wind
I sigh as some fall reassuringly so unto my palm
Though days may not be bright and balmy
Yet calm that follows is fraught with glory
Like a bird flailing its wings to the pulse of nature
The soul impetuous breathes both zest and song
In the moment that passed I felt that I too was free
