Fluted and Free

Silently it fell,

Floating in the breeze.

Swirling and twirling

Like a feather, it

Drifted past the tree.


But it’s only July.

Surely, it’s too early

For any leaf to fly?


With our recent heat

And onset of drought,

Many of the trees

Have wilted their leaves.


And thus it’s no surprise

That this tiny parched leaf

Now flew fluted and free.

    1. Hubby and I were at our local public gardens earlier in the summer and I had never seen the gardens so full of blooms – many of which like you say, opening their petals far earlier than usual. A beauty to be enjoyed in the moment.
