Lackadaisical (poem)~

languid

its movement is far from intentional

more lackadaisical…fluid

 

as if in denial of the spiral

the downward force

that fastens us to the source  

 

the autumn breeze

lifts it to the tree that freed it

 

an offering, of sorts

as it appears suspended

 

between gravity

and the patiently awaiting heavens
