Winds of Change

Moving

Feathers and leaves

Flying and floating around

Destination determines their

Purpose

The Leaves Speak of Life

Leaves of Spring plants

Leaves surround me

As I walk thru my garden,

Those of Bleeding Hearts

And Roses of all colors,

Lilacs and Lilies,

Leafy green Vincas and Ferns,

All speak to me of life,

That in the dark days of winter

Seemed lost, but was asleep.

NaPoWriMo Day 11–Prompt: significance of flowers, but I chose to write about the leaves instead as they are what are most prominent now, since many plants aren’t blooming but are leafing out.

Springtime Awakenings

Enjoying the new life

Springing up all around me

Singing and dancing

With the birds and daffodils

Shaking off winter doldrums

Autumn’s Bio

Painted leaves, Autumn leaf lady
“Miss Autumn” leaf art by LeonasDesigns

I am Miss Autumn

Dressed in vibrant colors

Creating crisp brisk breezes

Inviting leaves to dance

As maple trees clap

Their red and golden appendages

Beneath cloudy skies

And furry grey squirrels scamper

To gather the oak’s treasures

Attitude of Gratitude

Fall leaves on November calendar

Like falling leaves

Blessings coming down

From Father of Lights

With whom there’s no end

Too many to count

So I just say “Thank You”

Syllabic Verse

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

James 1:17 KJV

Leaves at Play

Nature’s

Fall games

Yellow

Races red

Wind quits

No winners

Syllabic Verse

It was a fairly windy warm Fall day today and I enjoyed being outside just watching the wind blowing the leaves around. I missed out on getting a video of a group of leaves dancing as I didn’t have my camera ready in time but it was awesome to see them swirl and twirl together in sort of a whirlwind burst of air.

But I did capture another video of them looking like they were racing each other as a big gust of wind blew them along. Fun day! 😊
