*A Waltz Wave: Fall Leaves Fly


Fall
leaves fly
past
the bus
moving through
traffic.
A
child's face
pressed against
the window looks
out at folks -
standing
at
bus stops,
walking on
the streets -
all
blurred with
leaves.

    This wonderful poem waltzes along at a breathtaking pace, drawing the reader into the swirl of of autumn leaves as the bus rolls along. You certainly know how to use this strict syllable count to optimum effect. S :) (Report) Reply

    A fine example of this form. You have really made it your own. This is a beautifully poignant word picture. (Report) Reply

    slim; compact; deliberate; speedy - and it goes away, like the falling leaves of fall, a blur - bot only temporary, temporarily. Much enjoyed this, Lillian,10, not a blur; a real ten, more than 9.999 - a real 10

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
