Last Dance

Rise and twist and swirl around
You captured by the breeze
Pieces of dead leaves on the ground
Rise once again from a winter grave
One last dance around and around
You give me great pleasure to save
The memory of your lasting days
Still attracting my tireless mind
One last act before the final decay
Sends you at last away to stay

About this poem:
Rather mindless fascination and inspiration gotten looking out my kitchen window as old leaves and grass and flower head were whipped up into the air by the wind swirling around the corner of the back porch.

Lili, Sometimes I think it is meditation for me to escape all the sounds and sights of our 'man made' world and just watch and listen to the 'real' world that surrounds us. Nothing is more meditative than sitting besides a gurgling brook. Thanks for your comment

Nice poem Yankee with a well chosen title. Nature in all its forms invigorate a poetic mind.

Regards Mick.
