Words


Sometimes you come across a word you've heard, read and used many times before and now suddenly that word takes on a new life with a stronger sense of meaning. Somehow that word albeit simple becomes much, much more, more powerful and motivating... I noticed a leaf on my travels it stood out like a glittering jewel on the roadside, struck by its vivid colours and symmetrical pattern I picked up the leaf and stroked it. On touching the velvety smooth surface the word that had been on my mind for days emerged again, as I looked and thought about the leaf and the word a strange kind of sadness began to creep over me, an intense awareness that this leaf's time-bound beauty also signaled its decline...
  
floating leaves, fleeting
moments riding on the wind,
 heavenly message...

Sending my words to
Haiku my Heart
Recuerda mi Corazon

Beautiful, Sue... "time bound beauty...", oh so true... And "fleeting moments riding on the wind." Really resonates with me, and does create a kind of sadness. Lovely imagery, and photo...

How awesome this word was in your thoughts and then you found the perfect little thing to express it with. Lovely. Such a rich color this leaf. A fleeting color.

Timelessness hints at
Adventures yet to arrive
I await. Breathless

dearest,
holding you as tenderly as you hold this message in a velvet leaf. embracing our own fragility
we live each moment for the fleeting treasure it is.
love from across the pond,
rebecca
