Leaves for Dinner

One of my favorite things about the Fall is playing in the leaves, of which we're never in short supply.
This year Elijah enjoyed swimming in the leaves, bobbing under the leafy surface so that we could barely see him.
Playing in the leaves every Fall has become somewhat of a family tradition.
It's an awesome sensory experience for Elijah.
A sensory experience of which Elijah takes full advantage.
Yes, he comes up from his leaf dives with a mouth full of leaves.
Hmmm, perhaps I should add a leaf dish to my meal plans. Elijah seems to enjoy it.

Autumn Leaf Diving

Joyful smiles from a little boy,
Bobbing up like a little toy.

Leaves crackling and crunching the air.
Elijah disappears, take care.

Watch the play of a little boy.
Each of us looks and smiles with joy.

There is a swirling in the leaves.
Whoosh and Wee, his father retrieves.

Reaching into the leaves piled high
Bringing out Elijah, our Guy.

Dad is rewarded with giggles.
Soon Elijah’s body squiggles.

For on he must climb to the top.
There is no time to think or stop.

Coming up with leaves in his mouth.
Which direction, north or south?

Mom, the delicacies delight.
I know you can get it just right.

Each leaf adds its own gourmet taste.
Off he goes as each leaf is chased.

These leaves are all in a day’s work.
It’s nothing Elijah can shirk.

Love you, MomKat
