Leaves Swarm
Diane Webster


On the ground leaves fall†
like bees swarming†

back to the hive†

where wind whips†

them into a frenzy†

of massive movement.†

Loved this sparse delightful poem with the unique metaphor of bees swarming back to the hive to descrive leaves being whipped into a frenzy by wind.

It is amazing how we all see differently. Fallen leaves as a swarm of bees-wonderful!
