Spirit Ariela Oliver… Falling



Rain is falling all around
The dew drops from my mindv

Plop plop plops
goes the drops

The plot of my story.

There is a dry spot to sit
I feel rainy today
who knows when the rain will fall on me?
There is a fear of getting wet, cold

and being unable to get dry and warm again.

I can not control the rain.
I am a leaf on a tree
an ever-changing leaf.
Perfect in imperfection,
yet unfinished in every way
strange and beautiful
unique unto a leaf on a tree

and the elements that shape it.

I don’t know just when I lost control,
but do know I was afraid.
A fearful leaf on a tree,
ss-shivering in the wind.
Awake full of color, full of sound
floating falling downdowndown.
