where we meet

when the day falls 
in sodden strips, 
snags toes on pavement edge
spills to mirrored ladders,

the wetly twirling leaves
double their ponderous flight
up and down, into and deeper
resting on meniscus

the middle is a space 
of floating // parts might kiss
or turn away, boundaries
and meetings

all in reflection

  1. Wonderful imagery as always (I say that every time but hey, it’s true). So much to ponder in this one, too. I find fall and winter to be immensely inspirational for poetry. This is gorgeous writing. 🙂

    Beautiful. Love the sort of shy romantic feeling that rises up in this section 🙂
