                  A gilded leaf on the move 
                     Now trapped like a deer 
                        In headlights, pushed 
                          Against a chain-link fence 
                            By a whistling Autumn wind 
                              Its trembling in distress
                             Struggling to slip through
                           Continually flapping on 
                         The fence, as if calling attention 
                       To other leaves
                    Roaming free, slipping past...
          "Hey! Over here! Help me!"

             Or perhaps gesturing at me...
    Come! Come! Pry me free!

Edward, I like your personification of the leaf and admire the "movement" in your poem using a special layout. Congratulations on your placement in Brian's contest! Best wishes, Carolyn
