Listen to the wind inviting
Each leaf on the tree to dance
And spin, as though in a
Vortex, or to drift alone,
Enjoying its freedom, and then to
Sleep with its siblings on the ground.

4th September, for Francine’s Autumn Acrostic contest

    O yes...that's what they do, go to sleep on the ground and then we have to wake them up before the snow starts. One love my friend! Joy Wells
