Word Prompt: a Leaf

Words flutter past me; in their fall, I reach blindly for one to call my own. Like leaves, brittle and frail in autumn gusts, they crumble to pieces in my shaky head. Their beauty is crushed, and I have no choice but to reach for others. Turning so quickly from green to brown, drying up before my very eyes, I think they all might die before I can find one pumping with life. Life to bring spring and summer on the page where I dread winter’s frozen and barren grounds. In the whirlwind, I search for the word still orange and red, where shades of green still fight for their right, and once it is in my sight, I will leap high to make sure it is mine.

About 365 Things to Write About

I'm inspired by almost anything and everything creative - nature, architecture, art, words, music...I like to roam along streets, through foreign countries, and within my mind where the world is full of endless possibilities. I dream of being an idealist, but I've experienced too many harsh realities for that wish to ever be true.
