    I want so much to catch what I see

    Descending down
    almost exactly
    on
    top
    of
    me

    but the wind is blowing...
    cold and steady
    and you don't come
    near enough
    to notice
    that I have
    always been right here
    ready to break your fall

    When this season
    changes will
    you be moved
    by the currant
    of the air
    floating away
    effortlessly
    without a care

    When the cool breeze picks you
    up will you
    be forever gone
    I wait;
    ...I watch
    to see where
    you might be carried
    or how far away from
    me you will land ~

    and I want so much to catch one leaf
    of you
    inside the palms of
    my hands

    Most dearest CINNAMON SPRINKLED AMBER AUTHOR.......

    How wonderful to be able to see that love and nature....
    As well as love of nature can occupy the same space of poetic
    expression at the same time!!*

    The tree of life under which you stand
    Shall never run out of LEAVES
    Like the lamps that NEVER ran out of oil....
    As long as you BELIEVE!!!
    Stretch out your arms, your hands, and capture life within
    Wrap yourself around it as prescribed by GOD!
    ENJOY it while you can, for it is gone all to soon!
    Absolutely adored this.......as Seymour would say..FEED ME! (more)

    SAARONCROWELL

    *Kinda shoots that matter occupying the same space at the same time theory all to heck, don't it!:kiss:
