Last Leaf

Last gullible green leaf
clings smug to fragile fulcrum,
rustles, shudders in pale sunshine,
fights ruddy rush to fall, spinning,
to rest mellow on untidy forest floor.
Subliminal message: Time is short

This is a response to a wordle from using the words "rush, mellow, gullible, rustle, smug, shudder, fulcrum, sunshine, ruddy, untidy, subliminal, spinning"


  1. I like what you did with these words; and yes, time is VERY short.

  2. Wonderful poem! You've used the wordle words so beautifully ... fluid, polished and seamless!

  3. Beautiful, Victoria. I'll think of this every time a see a leaf fall.

  4. I like the image in this--that last gullible leaf. An important message.

  5. I love the way you worked the words and lines. A real attention getter beginning with the gullible leaf and ending with the message. Love this.
