Design. - Poem by Fay Slimm

One fallen leaf,
which,
among the
rush of
a rustling many,
finds a
ledge, wedges
there and
catches time.

Resting, it ever
so slightly
flutters
and in my mind
becomes a
lime-leaf gem
which,
back-lit by
summer light,
shines like
some
divine lantern.

Greenly vain,
its flimsy
show
begins as leaf
clings low
then
in eerie glow
it slowly
^
^
re~so~nates.

Rich highlights
throw a
golden maze
of opaque
over veins of
patchwork
finely
sewn into a
mosaic
which then
gently
...
un~du~lates
..
.hypnotically.


One garden
leaf
becomes
to me a green
and
graphic entry
into a
mystic new
design
for my
wild-garden
meadow,
lined with
trees.

A scheme
which
keeps
intriguing
me is
taking shape.
