Shy Dryad

 

by ayaz daryl nielsen

 

 

Speak to the leaves on the trees

Be gentle and persuasive

they’re waiting for

 

your words.

 

Talk with trembling leaves

 

They know your presence, your

bloodlines and passions.

 

Speak of them, your

words within

 

autumn winds

 

Speak of the restlessness

of leaves

 

upon trees.
