Written for: Poetic Bloomings2 – Autumn PAD – Day 4 – LEAVES
“Again with the leaves? But we aren’t talking colors, only the leaf itself. Simply write a leaf poem. Everything is fair game. Maybe your life as a leaf? A leaf’s job. A leaf causing problems. The playful properties of a leaf? Don’t leave any stone unturned.”
Leave them alone, first day of Spring,
those kids sitting on playground swings
scuffing feet, reading, debating.
No bullying! No bullying!
They look different, clothing un-chic.
Don’t put up posts that call them freaks.
Don’t persuade others, they are geeks.
Our differences make us unique.
Leave them in peace. Leave them in peace.
