Unleashing the poet inside this is my brother's latest instalment.  

His challenge was to write the poem in such a way that the reader could imagine the story being about a leaf or that it could be about love.

You be the judge of that and do tell me what you think.

by Alex Hajas

The summer wind has brought you forth
Among the thistle and the thorns
With a smile in a lonely field
Alone you shine for me to see

They weigh you down but you resist
Your sheer strength creates a mist
Where you hide in time of sorrow
To gain your strength for what's tomorrow

Everyday you seek the sun
To feel its warmth that gives you life
So keep on smiling and look up
And see the rays that fill your heart
