The Leaves

The leaves are completely still now

They’re just breathing

Looks like they’re tired

after a gaily dance to the tune of air

How they swayed moments before

was a sight you missed

Seeing them, only,

I felt light and serene

I wanted to be one of them

So I could also sway

to my own tune

in my own air

So I could be Me!

I am an aspiring writer. I'm still discovering my strengths and learning the art of poetry and prose.

Professionally, I'm into Internal Communications and feel blessed to have a work life that is closely related to what I am passionate about, Writing :)
