as I walk

down cobblestone

I can tell

i’m not alone

but there is nothing

here to fear

and I walk on

suddenly

to my delight

leaves are flitting in the breeze,

harmonizing with the trees

they need no melody

they sing,

acapella

~Melanie Blackwell

  1. Lovely words and picture Melanie.

  2. Ooh, beautiful, I always feel the sound of leaves in trees is like music! Can be very loud sometimes too! 🙂

    It’s so unfair I can only click like button once… I can so much relate to this poem, Melanie, as I have a habit of walking away my stress/other emotions. Beautiful capture of that little moment that pinches our restless brains every once in a while…

  4. I just love the last to lines because they are true and remind me to pay more attention to the sounds around me. What happy and excellent poem.
