Mike’s Poem To Be In Mutabilis Press Anthology

Mike’s poem Leaf Laughter will be included in the 2015 anthology of Mutabilis Press of Houston. Here is the poem:

Leaf Laughter

Elms and oaks and tupelos

unleaving, ungrieving,

undressing tree tresses,

confessing with colors

their seasonal sin.

Leaf laughter comes after

quitting their day jobs.

Dancing while dying,

the leaves keep on trying,

seducing the wind,

their ramble and scramble

and gambol extend.

We without winter

fill five months with Autumn.

For leaves that’s a lifetime

to spend with a friend.
