Out on a limb

In autumn leaves rustling
I remember the glory
Of dancing out on a limb
The sway of the branch
As the winds of life
Determined where i would fall

In autumn leaves shining
I remember the colour
Of being held by you
As out on a limb i waited
For your heart
to catch me as i fell

In autumn leaves floating
I remember the sight
Of you and our children laughing
As out on a limb we held them
Safe in our hearts and our love
Never fearing that we would fall

In autumn leaves falling
I remember the grieving
And out on the limb on my own
I cling to the branch that gave me
The dance of the seasons, the reasons
For not regretting the fall.

    That is a beautiful poem. I hope you are saving all the lovely words you write to print in a book sometime.

    I love how upside down your seasons are to mine, but more than that, I love your words. Absolutely beautiful.

      Thank you Christi. It is comforting to know that somewhere in the world it is warm, because it’s a bit cold here today..
