    dotsLast Leaf Leavingdots

    As the last brown leaf
    Fails its grasp of the tree,
    Floating down to earth
    Like a bewildered kite
    To land softly.
    A papery crisp,
    To be trodden into the muck
    of the season,
    While I ponder the years
    beneath my yellow
    rubber galoshes.....

      Uhhh...what are galoshes??? I like the nature you put into your poems. The changing of seasons being related to the changing of people's lives is amazing. Great write.

      You make me miss the changing of the seasons. I live in Arizona where its hot and hotter and things go fast and faster. I am from Colorado originally. Your works take me to another time, another way of looking at the world. I especially liked the bewildered kite line.

      I like how you equate the years of life to the leaves that have fallen from the trees. Very well written and I enjoyed reading this.

      How about deleting the comma after YEARS? Also IT'S should be ITS.

    The bewildered kite is a great image, and it ties in well with the "lost years" feeling you get at the end. I know that at age 44 I am a little bewildered at how my life has gotten away from me. Makes me wonder if I have more leaves on the tree or on the ground!
