Futile

Futile

A Poem by Mary Ann M.
"

human existence

"

 

 

&
the
leaf
Falls
Falling
It’s falling,
And it’s fading
It is falling down
Like disgraced angels
 it's spiraling down fast
 it  is falling  like snow
  falling like raindrops
  it's like a dead bird
 falling like tears,
descending,
down the
ground
freed
fast
!

 


&
Oh
 Those
 Great Leaves
  They Fall down
  They fall like men
 They will perish
They will cry
 Great men
They
die
!

 

&
It’s
 the leaf
  that falls,
  it is falling
   like you, 
 falling
 like
 me
!

falling....a theme i am enamored with over the years. you lend it a unique perspective with your clever lettering format and give the poem a portrait for all to behold. nicely thought out and well worded, this is truly a work of artistic expression. awesome job, Maryanne!

Teardrop falling , that's what I can perceived with this poem and it is nicely presented.
I see the word leaf for what I think you intend for. However when I saw the shapes it's like a spiral of teardrops falling. Great concept.

I love how you start each stanza with &, it's like the thought is already in process. The shape of the pieces keeps me falling down, and it gets smaller and smaller like a tear drop. The second stanza "They fall like men, They will perish, They will cry, Great men, They die" oh this is so sad, but as the leaf falls so must we. The comparison between nature and human existence, is powerful, a reminder of death and what is inevitable. Thank you for sharing. Much love my friend!
