dancer (for you)

Indian horse-chestnut – 29/11/2021

if you
would like to see
me
dance

just wait . . .

the wind will
blow

I will
shimmer
on my branch

and then . . .

and then
I will
let go

ballerina
in the breeze

twirling
from
on high

and sailing
through
the air

the ground
is much too
close

but I will dance
the way
I know

and you
will follow

follow me
until
I fall

pick me up
for there
is more

throw me
again
into
the sky

and I will dance
around you

all the way
around
you

    • Thank you, Debby.

      I love everything about this tree, which grows wild on my regular walk. The chestnuts that it bears are like Harry Potter’s Dirigible Plums, the way they sit on the branch.

      Each flower cluster has the yellow I’ve featured here and another that is more towards red in colour. I’ll feature that one another time.

      PLeased you liked it.
