Leaf

Leaf short poem

The stillness of the wind
Is all around
As I walk along
This stretch of sand

Oh! how I am amazed
A beauty so grand
As I stood and gazed
This majestic land

I knelt and picked
A leaf in hand
And it was simply luck
That it’s here I find

As I stand and think
Of her somewhere
In this leaf, it sinks
My true feelings for her

If I can write truly
A poem in this leaf
What a bonfire of poetry! 
I can send, lovingly

As I turn around
And the leaf I threw
It was left to the wind
And to nature’s foe

A leaf that brings
The really best in me
And in my heart I knew
She’s a past, but oh! so true…

Longing for a lost love finds resonance in the imagery created by the poet on finding a leaf on the seashore. Simple but heart touching!
