leaves and stars

i could hold the leaf up to the sunlight and spy
through its thinning color and brittle skin
thousands and thousands of vessels within

i walk through the shallow end of fallen leaves
clutching a stack of them on the end of my rake
holding them up like a slice of cake

before pushing them into the mouth of a fire
they sparkle and sputter hot stars everywhere
dancing and smoking across the air

Thank you for reading this poem from
Reflections 2015, A Poetry Collection of Written Works by Tiny Fawns
This is a poetry compilation project featuring previously written content that I will share during periods of time when I am not available to provide daily updates. All poems from this collection were scheduled a week in advance. All comments, questions, and ping backs will receive a response once I return.
