october floated in

october floated in on a falling leaf
lifting and twirling and dancing down
still green with envy for the summer sun
the heavy grey sky reminded her of the sea
and the way the tide rolls in on a stormy day
making frothy white faces as it sings
october spun madly on her little green leaf
from the tippy-top of the tallest tree she watched
as the bumpy brown ground braced for her fall
she sighed
but wait!
a golden mum stood between buckling tree roots

perhaps her new home won’t be so bad after all
