    Hi, Sonny - I am doing an art / science activity for children at a community Wind Festival in Euclid, Ohio. I am using the seeds that are blown by the wind - like maple seeds. I like your poem very much and plan to use it with our art project. Thank you!

    Assisted Living is perfect. I think you have to have been through it to know it and write about it. See my 'Waiting for the Folks.'

    I just love your poems! Keep up the wonderful writing! ! !

Best Poem of Sonny Rainshine

A Leaf Refuses To Fall

The leaves don’t let go
that easily either. It takes a bluster,
a filabuster of north wind,
and the wasp-sting of the first
chill of late September
to tear them off the page
of summer.

Persuasion doesn’t do it.
Sometimes in the middle of winter,
(the DEAD of winter, as they say)
you might see one shriveled
oakleaf, dangling from a frozen
filament of stem,
defiant, victorious.

Nothing likes to end;
the October wind invites
the leaf to tango in the frosty air.
A shy curtsey, a twirling turn,
a pirouette, then the dance
is...
