Brilliant mosaics

Cottonwood leaves
the size of saucers 
fall haphazardly
from treetop hutches 
across the lawn,
their gilded cellulose 
still intact, setting
Autumn’s tableau,
before footsteps crunch   
cuticles into thousands
of pieces, littering

    I love those brilliant mosaic, my soul seems larger for seeing them. Thanks for the wonderful words. 🙂

    • Your are most welcome, Brenda, and thank you for your kind words! I hope you have a wonderful, inspiring Wednesday, my friend 🙂

        So far, it has been inspiring. I taught a writing class this morning, and I fell a little in love with all my students. How precious that relationship is, student and teacher. 🙂 Peace and joy to you and yours, Brenda

  2. My cottonwood tree is not nearly as poetic as yours.

    • You are too kind, Andrea! Thank you, my friend 🙂 We all have poetrees whose leaves will fall only for us – our voices are equally valuable in and of themselves. Have a wonderful day, my friend!
      Tyler 🙂
