Leaves

Leaves,
gold-sprayed papyrus
russet speckled,
crescent moonflakes
woven by weevils,
filigrees laced
with ice
crunching
underfoot
on frosted
dewy grass

I like the line "laced with ice", it just sounds like beautiful fall to winter leaves :D

Hi Coral..
Hope all is well.... :)

Simplistic words can carry heavy meaning from time to time. This one is no exception, I especially liked the
"gold-sprayed papyrus / laced with ice." Beautiful poetry.

Kate and Jerry,

Thank you for checking out my blog. I am so pleased you liked the poem.

Wendell,

Thank you for your valuable input. Yes, I am OK for the time being. Thanx for your concern. Your words are a great source of comfort to me.

Love,

From reading this poem, which I find exceptional, it looks like you might be interested in a new online magazine that I recently launched. We can feature people's pieces. Check it out:

www.bememagazine.com

Enjoy!

Katie,

Thank you for checking out my blog and for your kind comments on my poems. Congrats on the launch of your interesting and well- presented news magazine.

I have bookmarked your mag for future reference - with a view to subscription when I am next available (probably sometime in the New Year).

Good luck,
Coral

Interesting blog you've got here. I should come back soon to check up your poetry with more time.

Me and a friend of mine have a poetry reading group in Portugal, meaning that we only read them in Portuguese, but every now and then we post it in English in our blog. If you ever feel like checking it out or adding it to your links, that would be very nice.

My blog is www.goncaloveiga.blogspot.com and my poetry group is called Poesia Para Ninguém (meaning Poetry For No-one). If you pass by either each one, feel free to drop a comment.

Keep the poetry flowing!

Sinuous language but a bit over the top with "woven by weevils."

Goncalo Veiga,

Thank you for reading my poetry. I like poetry of all shapes and in most languages, but I haven’t tried Portuguese. I will visit your blog shortly.

Craig Erick,

Thank you for your comment. I have sent you an email.

Love,
Coral

I wish I understood poetry. I mean I understand it, but I dont get it.

I think it might be like wine. I can actually taste the fruity overtones or the oak, and lots of people just taste wine. maybe thats a good analogy, or maybe not.

I just wish I got it.

Hi, Bossxero,

Thanks for checking out my blog. Yours is very interesting. Before my poetry predilection, I used to dabble a bit in predictions. Mine were accurate more often than not.

Regards,
Coral
