The Flight of the Autumn Leaf

the autumn leaf in her element;
gliding like an ageless beauty on heat
dreaming of perfection
in the golden light of dawn

you take the world
by storm
spruiking desire

the heart flutters
in the moist hour
sharing the blissful
of love and hope

musing over
the yellow moon, the sound
of endless joy

i quiver in the living
splendour of your essence,
a taste of the powerful fragrance
that transforms my life

i dream
a colourful dream of wonder
orange blossoms

how wonderful is the maiden flight
of the autumn leaf!
the glorious cycle of life
in all its manifestations
