Static Leaf

c0c4725d0be57f3e29aebfe4e0f5f0df

The leaf dances

Around every corner

Around every thought

Even in the avoided song

 

Now upon the ground

A rush of wind stirs

Hands like autumn

A distant radio is heard

 

Gathered in piles

An invitation to jump

Soft at first, then asphalt

Static, a lover’s whisper

 

Raked bare sidewalks

A desert of cracks

My feet are soft

I sing the same song, continually

 

For the return of Green

Buds of my passion

Birthed in warmth

My ear tickled by rustling

 

They hang onto mothers

A fragile childhood

Bathed in heat

Time is a refrain

 

Slid from my hand, again

I turn my palms upward

Bits and pieces

The staffs are full of tears

    “Soft at first, then asphalt” always the way. You get through the soft bit only to find the asphalt, reliable and hard beneath your feet. Thanks.
