Leaves

Post by nekot » Fri Oct 07, 2016 3:03 am

Attached to their twigs
secured to branches
that grow from limbs
strongly supported by the trunk
given life from the roots
and the rain
and the sun

Some leave their perches
when the breezes blow
through the green
in the summer
before the fall

Some clap
Some wave hello
Some sway like a slow dance
Some quiver with excitement

And they smile

If you take the time
to listen
they will speak to you
as guardians of the earth
until Autumn

Then Evergreens stand strong
as protectors and witnesses
through the winter
even when the rhododendren leaves curl
to stay warm

Walk consciously
or roll on wheels
among the trees
and feel them cradle you
~eloquently scattered~

Mountain called DAIBOSATSU in Yamanashi, Japan.
Views at the top including Mt. Fuji are spectacular.

Soular, I'll probably never get to see Mt. Fuji...other than in pics. I looked up Mt. Daibosatsu. Sounds like a sweet hike! Hope it was wondermous...and the sunset too. :hello:
