A Leaf’s Wish in Fall by Cecilia-Anca Popescu


I wish I could be
a red golden leaf
that falls from the tree
looking for relief.

To let go in air
on my lifeless float,
every single fare
in life that I wrote.

I wish I could be
a red rusty leaf,
that falls from the tree
to forget the grief.

If you find me soon
kiss me, to uncover
spells of full moon
and I’ll be your lover.

Cecilia-Anca Popescu left Romania in 1993, shortly after the Revolution. Today she is managing a chemical lab in her country of adoption. Burdened with the nostalgia of every Romanian immigrant, Cecilia-Anca Popescu writes about the drama of the expat, about her life experiences, and sometimes about her cats.
