Leaves in God’s Palm

 

leaf

 

At first

Yellow-belly core

Hugging slender stems

Unwilling to let loose

Prying, tearing, lifting

Filtered through His Hands

 

Sailing, lunging, laughing,

Each unique acrobatic performance

Highlights the changing

Crimson-tipped free form

 

Cupped within the fingers

Of the Master

We start to trust

leaves
trusting the Master

How much do you like or write poetry? If so, do you like a specific kind? Rhymed? Unrhymed? A certain meter? Only certain topics?

    I like to read poetry. To interpret poetry. But I struggle to write poetry. I think it’s too abstract for me. I like to know the rules and poetry feels lawless to me.

    Nice, Amy. I love poetry. It can express the inexpressible in a few words/ lines.

    Hi Carrie,
    Yes, reading and interpreting it is fun. Mine is very basic but we have some poets in our writer’s critique group that is really excellent. 🙂
    Haha! I like that – lawless! It sounds like these poems are outlaws! I love them if they aren’t too difficult. 🙂 Thanks so much for reading it and taking time to comment! Oh yes, do your high school students write poetry? I kind of remember them journaling.
    Thanks,
    Amy

    I have written poetry and verse at various times throughout my life, beginning as child. I sometimes write silly verses for specific occasions, but I normally write blank verse, unrhymed, to express emotions. Your poem is beautiful.

    Dear Barbara,
    Thank you so much! It is so nice to meet another poetry lover. I did the same thing, little rhyming verses when i was young for specific occasions (actually, I still do that). 😉 I love reading blank verse (I guess that means free verse).
