The gypsy-like leaves

The gypsy-like leaves

A Poem by Relic

Image result for Autumn Screensavers


They flee and fly like jostling birds -
or gray moths 'round a light.
They pirouette in lazy rings -
while frolicking in flight.

Leaves - like gypsies - slip away
with a soft spot for the wind.
Soon to sweep and persevere -
in lives undisciplined.

Some will scurry in their haste
to pester pine trees praying.
But then they'll sit for just a bit -
In fields where I was laying.

You're so kind, thanks, Kimmie.
dear Relic... since I am truly a Gypsy... I found your
poem fascinating. I love "to pester praying pines".
We gypsies do persevere, however we can be a bit
undisciplined. My father's heritage is Hungarian...
They came here via The Statue of Liberty.

Wow...thanks very much for the review, Patricia.
This is a great way to show the dynamic life of falling leaves! I was very taken in by your dynamic descriptions with a touch of personification, as if the leaves (as a whole) have a personality you're painting here. There's also a hint of allegory, as far as some people possibly being like these leaves, only gracing one's field for a brief season of time (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

There's never a time too late or too early to write about glorious autumn. The thought of them falling on where I lie is delightful.

Relic,
Oh this was mesmerizing. I allowed my imagination to run with the wind and the amber leaves of Autumn. This was fun to read as it allows the reader to see how you feel and enter into your surroundings. I like that.
