Air currents lift me high
Offer solace without a sigh
Take me places I cannot see
Yet experienced, an epiphany
I become a leaf carried quietly
Over mountainous peaks and lush valleys

Panoramic splendor surrounds my soul
Betwixt dark clouds and kaleidoscopic rainbow
A wind tunnel shoots me down
Until I hover above the ground
A gentle breeze catches my wing
Warmer winds now signal spring

A floral palate becomes my canvas
Beauty abounds and invigorates my senses
A temporary respite upon pink azaleas
Brings forth the spring in all her regalia
Rested now I take off again
For another drink of tonic and gin

My stupor propels me into another flight
Where reds and oranges are dulled by night
A leaf no more Iím shackled to the ground
Where dust and termites continually abound
My senses dulled by alcohol
The wind disappears before my fall

Superb poetry! The last stanza brings home
what sorrow alcohol abuse can cause.
