Designer Leaf

by Kenneth Hoffman
(Morristown, NJ , USA)

Once in a garden there was a tile in relief,

On its surface lay a painted leaf.

I thought, "That artist really painted with guile;

He tried to fool me with his flamboyant style."

A shape that's drawn so perfectly symmetrical,

To exist in nature would be heretical.

A pink like that has never been seen -

Or peachy-wine tones on that lavender-green!".

While thinking my thoughts, (I had more to say)

A breeze came along and blew it away.
