Poetry of Renewal








The leaves are wisps in the wind

So young and new and light

Fluttering about without a care

And all the world seems right


Flashes of green and yellow

As they turn in their sprightly dance

 A breeze so light and crisp

Adds to Spring’s romance



The wind belies the storm ahead

That tests the little leaves

In the sky there looms a shadow

That will change their life of ease


Their movement spins erratically

As the wind blows brisk and strong

The storm comes in and threatens life

Bending the branches long


But just as quickly the storm abates

And the leaves shine with drops of dew

They are stronger and more beautiful

 Colored in a brighter hue. ©
