Winter leaves

1-IMG_2977

Trees
fill my mind
with poetry
and books with leaves
left as offerings
for this poet
at my feet…
 
Just yesterday
Romeo brings them
to me:
Three winter leaves
Three separate shades
of January
We do have winter in Texas
 there are
Leaves to admire
and
yes, leaves
to press
between the words
of far greater poets.
than I.
