October at Home

A Poem By Aisling // 11/5/2008

the leaves have caught the sun
and hold it boldly, bravely
and give it, all unwavering
even when it’s gone

the leaves have caught the light
they guard it like a secret
they treasure and they keep it
even through the night

the leaves have caught the glow
and mirroring each other
they paint the whole world over
refuse to let it go

the leaves have caught the sun
and play it ‘neath the blue sky
right back into the bright eye
of the one they caught it from

the leaves have caught the story
of this world's undying glory



wow!! i really enjoyed this!

Brother: Your character should drive a motorcycle.
Me: He can't. He's in the wilderness.
Brother: Then make it a four-wheel-drive motorcycle!
