Leaves Land (Friday Flash 55)


Oh Leaves

Leaves land
on land
on leaves
(grass sleeves)
on rock
(where they lie stock
or on hill
(where they spill
and turn)
on fern,
fall from high
to cow pie
or get caught
on some sly
their own–which
they’ve flown–oh
leaves–till they land
on land
and leaves, other

The above is my extremely belated Flash Friday 55 for the wonderful G-man. Go tell him even late! And rub some leaves in his hair!

Also, if you have time this Columbus Day weekend – check out my books! Poetry, GOING ON SOMEWHERE, (by Karin Gustafson, illustrated by Diana Barco). 1 Mississippi -counting book for lovers of rivers, light and pachyderms, or Nose Dive, a very fun novel that is perfect for a pool or beachside escape. Nose Dive is available on Kindle for just 99 cents!

    What matter that you be late when you come bearing such gifts? (Verse and images)

    this was fun…i love watching the leaves fall…and you never know where they might end up…maybe a cow pie or…lol…they are beautiful…even when dried to a crunch…

    Gorgeous pictures, K, and in your words, a real feeling of that drifting and falling randomness which happens when the limbs let go and the wind takes charge of their charges, as it were. We seldom have much in the way of fall color here, but I do remember the glorious scarlets, ambers and bright golds that colder climates are granted as a last gift before the erasing grey and white of winter.

  5. haha…so cool…what a fun verse k. – and wonderful pics

    i love the way your words fall in form and the ending becomes the beginning again. the crisp rhyming makes this really fun to read aloud, too. very nice.

    Loved your 55.
    Sorry I’m late, I was fishing with my son and there was NO service.
    You are a Peach for even getting it in on time.
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week

    I love this! The cadence, the wordplay, the choppy lines… very nicely done! And gorgeous photos to boot! I’m also enjoying the eve of Autumn, but I hope the sun sticks around just a little longer. Here’s mine: New Deal
