A Wish - Poem by Charl JF Cilliers

Shoals of leaves freely drift
on the water as gracefully
as swans that dip and lift
to the water’s melody

free of the trees
from which they fell
with a gentle breeze
onto the nudging swell.

My wish would be
that time would grant me
freedom to move with such grace
into the unfamiliar melody
of a new and distant place.
