Dancing Leaf

Maple Leaves

A leaf won’t blame the maple tree
When summer warmth is gone.
Forgive the fall. Through winter see
Fresh spring to dream upon.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. I love this, Frank! What a creative way to illustrate the hope of forgiveness …. letting go of blame (especially self-judgment) and forgiving with the promise of Spring. That’s what I took away, anyway. 🙂 Light, forgiving, new birth, and creativity – such a great combination.
    I’ll share this for Forgiving Fridays tomorrow. Thank you, and happy #ForgivingFridays. ~Blessings, Debbie

  2. Leaves fell in the Fall, their bodies piling up like holocaust victims, filling ditches and back yards–yet all this death will be first hidden by snow and then replaced with new birth; and so it goes.

  3. I look forward to next spring, Frank. Thank you for your poem. I missed last spring and didn’t plant too many flowers this year because I was so occupied with my first book. I look forward to next blossom.
