Walking Among Leaves

Walking Among Leaves short poem

Uploaded by Cliffton Cromberg

Dry leaves ruffle together

like voices over a gentle waterfall.

In this coolness of night are echoes

that drift ever so quiet on a breeze,

into sleep and the solitude of dreaming.

A single thought, a breath, a tear…

Sounds of silence often falls

like a mist out of a burnt sky,

into a world where people

are like dry leaves,

ruffling together in the wind.

Leaves on the trees turning from yellow to brown With a stiff wind soon on the ground Rustling, rustling A pile of leaves so neatly collected Beckoning me so they’re not neglected Rustling, rustling I jump I jump so gleefully
