just like a leaf

i watch the sky weep in swells gathering within my eyes i watch as the first leaf spirals downward tainted unafraid of death i sit grounded in thoughts of your end ...and the cold kiss of lips motionless to life my mind spins sorrow golden as i sip thoughts autumn like realizing i too am unafraid to die...

Thank you my friend...it's that time of year again where the leaves are falling so naturally once the thought was there it fell quickly until i got to the end and didn't know how to end it so i figured why not go there...back to the current phase of some of the leaves that were the first to fall... hugs :)

Well this puts a somber note on the afternoon...but a beautifully penned somber note I must say. Like that leaf, I am unafraid to die. Wonderfully expressed sadness my friend.

just a quick inspiration after discussing the gene pool with someone today, it made me think of family trees, which made me think of leaves...my mind works in mysterious ways sometimes when it gets an inspirational thought, sorry for the somberness you felt...i am good, it was just musing :) hugs
