I saw a squirrel jump
into a tree,
leaves exploded into the sky,
they danced effortlessly in the whisper of the dawn,
and played about on
the way down.

Two leaves disjoined
from the bunch,
and circled each other as they fell,
time was meaningless.

They landed on top of one another
their colors, though different,
their scars, though different,
were beautiful and kind.

The tricky breeze
skirted over the lawn, slapping blades of grass
along the way,
caught the two leaves and carried
them, clutched together,
traveling the yard
without a care,
many times their bodies kissed.

It was the pond at the far
end of the yard that finally
divided the friends,
they splashed down, and floated away

Hidden meanings.

Very clever & also very beautiful.

All ponds are able to be crossed at some point. Thats what bridges are for.

Shaye--fall is my favorite time of the year

Phoenix--yes, hidden meanings. If you watch objects floating in ponds long enough, eventually they bump into each other. Thank you for the compliment!
