Like a Leaf on the Wind

Like a Leaf on the Wind

Day 13 of 30 Days of Poetry

A child skips amidst a shower of fallen leaves
I swim in a sea of fallow leaves
Swirling, dancing, twirling,
Whipped up by the breeze,
Golden fishes schooling.

Twist, flash of sun! Then dart:
As one they turn and glide.
This complex choreography
Fuels my deep desires.

But my yearning is in vain.
Curse this pull of gravity
Holding me fast
When I would fly.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.
