Leaves purposed – Eugenia


withered fallen leaves

leaves wispy and frail

frail ’til the last dance

dance a last exhale

leaves like dog-eared pages

pages spineless in jail

jail with no voices

voices without bail

withered brown leaves

leaves blanket the earth

earth pulsates its warmth

warmth spawns new birth

leaves like dog-eared pages

pages waiting to be read

read words of wisdom

wisdom lost not dead

withered brown leaves

leaves memories bring

bring reason with purpose

purpose busied in spring

A gander at me –

I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…spending time with family, learning, sharing, traveling, writing poetry and encouraging others to pursue their goals.

Fallen leaves on the ground are the golden song of immortal creativity. – Amit Ray

Loop Poetry is a poetry form created by Hellon. There are no restrictions on the number of stanzas nor on the syllable count for each line. In each stanza, the last word of the first line becomes the first word of line two, last word of line 2 becomes the first word of line 3, last word of line 3 becomes the first word of line 4. This is followed for each stanza. The rhyme scheme is abcb.
