Random Fridays: Simple Beauty
Hello, everyone! This week's Random Friday theme is Simple Beauty. For this post, I'm challenging myself to write a short poem, probably a haiku, to go with each picture. I can't promise how good they'll be, but I'll try my best. Here goes!

Butterfly leaves dance
As they flutter away from
The coming winter.

Tall green mountains reach
For the heavens, towering
Over our small world.

Small flower stretching
Towards the bright sunshine,
Reaching towards life.

Into the forest,
Home behind, journey ahead,
We follow the Path.

 Watch the sun lifting
Over the mountains, chasing
The darkness away.

Well, there you have it. Hope you enjoyed my poetry (or at least didn't think it was terrible). Thanks for reading!
-Sarah (Leilani Sunblade)
