Pass Carefully | Gail Henderson



Speak softly as you pass me by

Tiptoe as you walk beneath my branch

I am deciduously determined to stay the day

Misty drizzle caught and dripped, drop by drop

To the forest floor


My beauty, a shade of Autumn

My strength, a single digit

Both fading

During lock down of 2021 she discovered an online writing group, The Procrastinators, the group has helped her explore different genres and given her the opportunity of sharing her work.
