a tiny froth of smile and grumble, a poem …


You floated into our lives ~

an autumn leaf
edged in gold,
a tiny froth
of smile and grumble,
a lifetime
of grit and grizzle

Your mind over-larded
lost
……in the never-land
……of ninety years

such a small body
……such pain

So bravely, little autumn leaf
….you chose
………the wind
…………….on which to slip away,
…..leaving us
the emptiness of your chair
and our wistful hearts

  1. An homage to an autumn leaf? The words take you to a special place of where one might reside and the journey they might take and it is as though they are as real as you and I. Be well.
