Leaves

June 11, 2018

Old Tree - Boyne River ~ Photo by Patrice

One Day
The trees were bare
The next
Leaves were there
Cascading
Waving in the breeze
Hiding treasured nests
Deep within silent
Green leaves
Soaking up the sun
Drinking in the rain
Leaves
breathe life
Into a mighty tree again.

A Hummingbird Came

Hummingbird and Feeder ~ photo by Patrice

A hummingbird came
To my window yesterday
She pleaded and begged
Me not to put away
That feeder which fills
Her each, everyday.

She needs calories
To fly away
On an epic journey
To warm, hot lands
Far far away.

Maybe tomorrow
She’ll leave
Before the snow flies
And the leaves
Are deceased.

So now, today
She pleads
Fill it up, leave it be
Help her get ready
For her long, long
Epic journey.

Fill it up, leave it be
Help her get ready
For her long, long
Epic journey.

Green Leaves Are What I See

Green leaves are what I see
Close by and far into eternity
Unfurling glorious green
Sometimes mixed with purple
Red or hunter green
Just to show magnificence
In the outlined sky supreme.

Glad to see leaves unfolding
Bringing life to silent trees
I’m sure all is okay today
And each and every other day
That leaves absorb sunshine
Blowing in the wind
Growing life there within.
