A Leaf


A Leaf

A leaf floats on the water
the surface calm and clear
I imagine the leaf a swan
preening ever near.

The bird is snowy white
so beautiful and strong
I finally blink my eyes
the leaf gets swept along.

  1. I really like the idea of your poem, Bekkie. Looking at a leaf and thinking of a swan is a very creative thought. Nice just to sit along the shore & just observe & imagine. Nice to see you here at Poets United. (Just a little hint for this site. If you post early Sunday you will get more visits…you came in at the very end…and sadly those who come at the end often aren’t visited quite as much.)
