Embrace the change, take the chance…

autumn leaf

I am perched upon a brittle branch
holding on to it, as long as I can
waiting for a brisk autumnal breeze
to pluck and carry me away,
away from my little abode…

And I’m afraid of this wave of change
Of what it will bring, to a delicate thing like me
Ambiguity surrounds me
as I twist and twirl
and make several turns,
cross endless boundaries
and swing to and fro
to finally rest on the ground…

And there I found
many more like me
lying there lifeless
wanting to explore
but waiting for a push…

But then, I was airlifted
the sun glowing through my translucence
not blinding me with its brightness
but adding to my undiscovered glimmer
I found myself at a height,
I doubted I could ever reach
that those who dare to fly
can only achieve…

Alas! the moment didn’t last long
as I glided off towards the world beneath,
twisting and twirling again
falling again…

But now I wasn’t afraid
Cause’ I have seen the ‘lift’
and I have seen the ‘glide’
And I have seen the spiritless
I dare to take a chance
I dare to be different…

  1. Your beautiful bewitching words, took me back forty years as a young pupil pilot, I flew my first solo flight. It was no more than twelve minutes of glorious freedom – I whooped and yelled, as I sailed down to earth once more. Thank you for your very special words, may they flow through your pen forever!
