Poem: The Dancer whirls in joy among the Autumn leaves

Posted by   + Show Post


Surrender

 

By the member known as BMat,  copyrighted 2009

 

The dancer whirls in joy among the Autumn leaves.

The dancer loves the leaves and their movement,

The brilliantly hued leaves join the dancer gracefully.

 

The oppressive clouds drip rain.

The clouds send cold. 

Cold rain chills the dancer.

 

The dancer shivers, bewildered.

She reaches out for the leaves to protect them.

Her movements slow in the wind and cold.

 

The clouds cast more rain. 

The dancer struggles to keep her smile and her joy.

Shivering, she wonders why so much rain and for so long.

 

The dancer moves gently with the leaves.

She sees that the clouds continue their storm.

Sadness fills her eyes as she brushes wetness from her face.

 

The clouds aim to stop the dancer.

 

The clouds have won.

Well that sucks. But I'm glad you are happy now.

Quoting Bmat:

It is the story of my job and why I left it,  and yes, it was sad. :(,  but I have been enjoying life after job also.

Quoting Mrs.Andrews:

It is sad, I am glad it was only about a job, not your whole life, and glad you are happy now. Lots of talent!
