*A Waltz Wave: Fall Leaves Fly Poem by Lillian Susan Thomas


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

    Simply captivating Lillian. I is like a long haiku that leaves one with a breathlessness of capturing something so beautiful that others pass by without ever knowing what they have missed out seeing. 10 love Karin (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
