Poem: The Leaf’s Glow

A Verbal Photograph by Debi
A single glowing leaf, somehow standing upright amid the other wet leaves on the path, needed to be recorded.  And I’d forgotten my camera.

wet leaves turn to darkness underfoot
even the sun can’t bring their colors to life
one leaf alone
standing upright between its darkened comrades
as a low winter sun beam
creates backlit beauty
of this leaf
this single leaf
this single autumn leaf
this single autumn fallen leaf
alive on the path
vibrant glowing radiant
stand tall small leaf
catch the sun and don’t let go
as you stand fearlessly
above the densely trodden crowd
your true nature is revealed
the world needs your beauty
in this dark time
on the cusp of winter
