Rebirth – World Poetry Day

playfully swirling
a cool wind scatters gumnuts across a rusty tin roof
spilt seeds bouncing randomly
waiting to be blown across the late autumn sky

tumbling and falling
finding a final resting place
a soft patch of silky dirt

snuggling in
they await the warmth of spring
the soft patter of rain
the miraculous transformation

a sapling

    • Yes Claudia, March is the beginning of Autumn, though it is still quite warm here, so the seasons are shifting slightly, which is scary shit – but i thought I would write a positive poem for a change!! lol And thanks for enjoying the poem 🙂
