Leaf prayer


How lightly, by strokes just so,
you keep me here, then let me go.

(now dying, now painting, now flying, still)

William.. "If I understood well" .. to hear itself, to have that feeling of to be light like a leaf, must be very beautiful, but ... is not for all we deadly.

I love this it gives me a sense that all is right in the world....reminds me of my hanging on leaf, bravo William

Thank you, Dino. May we, like leaves, land softly when we fall.

Lorraine, that’s just what I thought after posting this and visiting your blog yesterday.... Thank you.

Thank you you always make me feel better i may leave soon or I may not, this man has been harassing me for 3 years now for parking, i'm too much in the middle, I'm too much to the left I'm too much to the left, I'm not well and I have a social phobia and he is making me nuts...I don't know i can't stay here anymore....

Perhaps not. Perhaps, too, he does not realize he is as impermanent as a leaf, and therefore to be pitied.
