    I like your comment “Not just leaves”. You made me think about times I’ve “fallen” (not physically, but in other ways) in my life and it has been a journey before finding “home” again. Thank you for this reminder! I learn so much in the journeys! πŸ™‚
    HUGS!!! πŸ™‚

      Thank you for your kind words and thoughts Carolyn. I agree, sometimes we are like leaves, powerless in the wind. Eventually the storm stops and we are allowed to find our way home πŸ™‚

Sometimes, for sure! A wonderful poem, Davy! Wouldn’t it be cool if leaves could talk in words and they shared their journeys with us?!
I love leaves! In Autumn and Spring…they remind me of the cycles of life and how everything has purpose, AND all will be renewed. πŸ™‚

Last October, late one night, Coop and I were on a walk and heard a “thundering” noise coming down the sidewalk. It was a group of leaves! The wind hadn’t lifted them off the ground into the air, yet, so they were running along the sidewalk making a delightful noise! πŸ™‚ They ran on past us, with great urgency and quickness, and I laughed! πŸ˜€ It was a joy to watch them! πŸ™‚

HUGS!!! πŸ™‚

    That must have been wonderful for you and Coop to experience Carolyn and thank you for sharing. I like the feeling you portray about renewal as it adds to the cyclical feel of life and beyond. Have a great week πŸ™‚

An enchanting way of describing life’s vagaries and fate’s confluences, for are we not all mere falling leaves at the mercy of the winds.
Lovely piece Davy

Exquisite, Davy. I love the image and the metaphor. Thank you for this insightful pause.

a gentle piece of poetry Davy. it fluttered and spun around my heart. I wonder if a leave holds magic, so it stays airborne till a person needing a certain spell passes for it to be caught and good luck becomes theirs. your poem made me think of such a lovely scenario.

Oh, superb, Davy! Your words are so true to real life in that our journeys can take us in many directions. Home is where our hearts are.

Oh, to be a leaf and get caught in the wind again…
Aren’t we all like leaves when we are young? Twisting and turning every which way on our journey to be free? I suppose I’m now the leaf that has found its way home, settling softly on the ground. I suppose eventually all leaves crumple, dry out, and no longer are able to fly in the wind. Your poems always resonate with me, Davy. But, you know, I’d sure like to think that that old leaf could still fly every now and then, when the wind picks up and sets it free for one more glorious ride.

A tender image of all our lives! At times it’s restful to find a peaceful home, before being carried away by the wind or gales! πŸ˜€ A beautiful poem, Davy and one that will stay with me.

    Thank you Annika for your kind words and I am glad you enjoyed the poem. I agree with your thoughts about the rest between the wind and gales. I think sometimes we need that to get the best experience from when we are being carried by things out of our control.

This is beautiful, Davy. And I can so relate to the leaves that don’t fall directly to the ground.

    Thank you Laura and I am pleased you picked that up. Sometimes the leaves hit the ground but there are many journeys still to come before they find home. I think in a sense we are all leaves.

Davy, I agree with the others. This is a tender and deep poem.
I like so the way you use Sometimes, showing the unpredictability.
There can be many journeys before we find home, and how true is that
as is the winds play with the leaf whilst it travels.
Thank you for this.

That’s life, isn’t it? Blowing us in many different directions and paths, and we know not where we might land or if by chance we’ll always be swept away on another continuous journey. I like how everything about this piece flows as gentle as a leaf in the wind and the ending takes me right back to the title to read again. A delightful poem.

    Thank you Colleen and I am glad you pick up on the cyclical element of the poem, as I feel that there is never an end to it. One life always leads into another. It follows the Shamanic theme that all things contain a part of our ancestors and we all contribute to the furtherance of life, even after we are gone. I appreciate your words and thoughts on this.

Thank you Davy, for making such a simple observation of life into a delightful example of how things unfold in our lives too! We all make plans and have expectations and then life (the wind) comes along and “surprise” things end up turning out in a different way than we imagined. Thanks for stretching our thinking and way of seeing life!! Bravo, Davy, Bravo!!

I like the meditative visual of a leaf blowing round and round in the wind…the simplicity of one leaf’s journey depicting the complexity of life itself. Brilliant!
