Falling Leaves

Day 23

I have decided not to follow the prompt for today and go it alone. I love this poem. It reminds us that we need to slow down.

Falling Leaves

The leaves fall slowly down as

I watch from my seat on a log.

The woods around me are ablaze with color and

from where I sit, I can see far across the valley.

The trees are turning slowly this year and are

giving us a show worthy of the Gods.

The air has turned bitterly cold  

And a few snowflakes have started to fall.

The leaves will fall faster now and

before long the trees will be bare.

Heralding the start of winter and

a time of sleep and rejuvenation.

Letting us reflect on life and being told to slow down,

the falling leaves are a reminder.

A reminder that even though things look bleak

We can look ahead beyond winter to spring

Look past those falling leaves to a new beginning.
