Autumn invitation

November 22, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments
Under the big oakMaple Leaf
 in the middle of the park
a golden leaf spirals                                                                                                                            a golden leaf spirals
 slowly to your
 outstretched hand -
 a precious invitation.

how many invitations
 have you ignored till this very moment?
                                                                                                                              this very moment?
The song of the swift at sunset
 The curve of the herons neck
 The stubborn daisy growing between the cracks

All extending the invitation:
 Put down your knapsack of sorrows
 Join our dance today.
