Nature’s star crossed lovers #cinquain

colleen’s weekly challenge

Fallen
one at a time
a gift between lovers
from solid tree to shapeless breeze
a token
drifting aloof in wind’s turmoil
Love, caressed and careened
each leaf adorned
offered

        there’s a satisfaction to creating something within the rules, plus i always go and write without the rules when i want to be wild and free, i like the balance it brings,haha
