Captured Wind

Capture the wind in a painting

Leaf tornadoes

A final fall dance

Little girls

Wind-whipped hair

in tangles

Scuffed, shiny shoes

and uncontrollable giggles

Racing toward

A giant leaf pile

Calling the names

Of each child

Devilish expressions

On cherubic faces

Hand-in-hand

On your mark!

Autumn races!

Tumble weeds

of laughter

Knobby knees

And yesterday’s skinned elbows

Rolling round and round

In a pile of leaves

Wonder who made these for me?

Flip flops and princess jumps

Lace panties peeking out

Of Carhart jackets

Cutest tom-girls

Ever created

In a few more years

The boys will

Appreciate ’em

But for now

The small town watches

As these tots

Play hop-scotch

Suddenly, to the town’s dismay:

Runny nose and a sneeze

Girls called home

Before they freeze

This moment in time

A perfect painting it would be

Nothing fancy

Just two little girls

Playing carefree

I find myself "Dancing With Cancer", problem is...I can't dance. I stumble, bumble, and get pulled along. To keep my sanity, (humor me), I write short stories, a journal, musings and poetry....just about anything goes.
