I KISSED A FALLING, FALLEN LEAF

 

(5 November 2007, Along Stewart Creek, by Carl A. Patton)

 

Always walking in the Spirit

I touched nature and the

Creation one more time.

 

Yesterday I hugged a

Cedar tree. Feelings came

upon me that I cannot explain.

 

I moved to the embrace.

 

On this day a leaf floated

gently toward the ground.

It reached out at me as

to say ”catch me if you can.”

 

But, I know it spoke

to me. Thus I met it

at the ground.

 

There looking at the

earth I reached down and

plucked it up and held

it to my lips kissing it

as I had been assigned.
