“Leave” Me Be

I’m most relaxed with

my head in the clouds.

I see animals, warriors, and

mythical creatures.

In the absence of clouds,

I observe leaves.

Lots of leaves, on spindly branches,

Grasping at blue,

Framing my view.

    Love it…sounds like me!

      Thanks, Suzicate. I love leaves almost as much as clouds.

    I feel that way right now. I’d rather look at the scenery than write this paper for my online class. ugh.

      Assigned writing is always more difficult for me. I think it’s just a state of mind I get in (and sometimes, the topic isn’t ‘fun’) Good luck getting your paper done, Patty!

    Love the, ‘mythical creatures in the absence of clouds’. Very evocative!

      Thanks, Widdershins. Writing with my head in the clouds (or leaves) is a good thing 🙂

    Sometimes saying “Leave Me Be”
    Is the only way to be FREE 😉

    Here’s to clouds and leaves . . . and Janna’s poet~trees!

      Hehehe! “poet-trees” – very clever, Nancy 😆 Thanks for the laugh this evening!

    This is great – I always see strange creatures in clouds 🙂

    • jannatwrites September 20, 2012 / 10:16 PM

      I think it’s fun to find cloud animals…my kids enjoy it, too. Thanks for stopping by, Dianne!

    Only an sensitive soul can write those words.

      As always, thanks for reading and sharing your beautiful comment, Newwhitebear.

    Keep looking up, Janna!

    • jannatwrites September 20, 2012 / 10:25 PM

      I try to, Debbie…often! In fact, I got some cool cloud pics today (they are on my phone, though, since I didn’t have a ‘real’ camera).

    When leaf led, clouds unclog the head?
    You always have such thought provoking posts
    Nicely done

    • jannatwrites September 20, 2012 / 10:26 PM

      Thanks, Phil. I appreciate you reading my poem 🙂

  10. GodGirl September 20, 2012 / 7:46 PM

    Just wonderful! This poem really ‘dances’ with the joy of daydreaming. I love the pun in the title too 🙂

    • jannatwrites September 20, 2012 / 10:39 PM

      Thanks, GodGirl! I wondered if the pun in the title would illicit groans, but I couldn’t resist 🙂 I appreciate you stopping by to check out my post.

    I like the ‘head in the clouds’ phrase. How nice it will be if e can be like that always. 🙂 ‘Luv the pun in the title.

    I’m right there with you! Fall has me looking up at the sky and its clouds–it has a different feel than summer skies and clouds. And of course, all the leaves on trees that are changing colors as we speak. I’m gonna go crazy snapping pics of them–as I have already–because I am infatuated with fall leaves… 🙂

    • jannatwrites September 27, 2012 / 10:06 PM

      I love the fall colors, but we don’t really get them here. I’d take tons of pictures, too. I hope you decide to share some of them on your blog.
