This is one of my favorite poems of all time.
It’s a fantastic example of the capability of the poetry medium.
Horizontally, it reads
l(a leaf falls)onliness
it draws upon the universal symbol of a single fallen leaf as a representation of loneliness. The words are visually constructed to represent the back and forth sinking, fluttering pattern of a leaf falling from its limb. It is a message of how loneliness is from separation and isolation.
It’s things like this that remind me of how fragile and delicate the existence of humanity is.
I am really not too sure how I’ve made it two years without this man, his smiley face breakfast platters, hugs and our Mario’s pizza dates. I thank each and every person who has been in my life these past two years because y’all have gotten me through each and everyday :) I love y’all almost as much as he loved me ;) miss and love ya daddy.
