Leaves and Bridges



Leaves and Bridges


Leaves and bridges, falling, falling,

A new you is calling, calling.

Put aside all thoughts of riches.

Pray for autumn’s leaves and bridges.


A journal’s words, penned first so soft,

While through my soul my prayers do waft.

Send feeling’s pulse like hummingbirds,

Love brought forth through a journal’s words.


Dear sleeping sky, tell us your truths.

Recognize your mistakes as proofs.

Learn what faiths you must abide by, 

Teach freedom’s thoughts, dear sleeping sky.


Stand to the side, show no disgrace,

While lingering on life’s staircase.

Destroy your sins, swallow your pride.

Use a clear head, stand to the side.


Dramatic flair, genuflection,

Blessings found within reflection,

No thrift of words in my high prayer,

So spoken with dramatic flair.


Leaves and bridges, burning, burning,

From ragged moths catch your learning,

Measure your ecstatic vigils,

A touching scene, leaves and bridges.
