Leaves And Butterflies


Thousands,
Of leaves.
Blowing by,
On the north wind.
Rolling,
On the streets,
Flitting,
On the grass.
Thousands,
Of colors.
Reds, yellows, browns,
Myriads of each.
Returning,
To the Earth.
Thousands,
Of butterflies,
Blowing by.
On the north wind.
Loafing,
On the streets,
Flitting on the grass.
Thousands,
Of colors.
Blacks, blues, oranges.
Myriads, of each.
Chasing leaves.
As they return,
To the Earth.
Glorious Fall.

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
