Leaf Peeping

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me.” — Emily Bronte

In that funny way 

that some husbands

have of teasing, 

in which my husband 

excels, today he calls 

me a peeping leaf-er,

so I laugh and say

he means a leaf peeper,

but he knows and winks,

so I tell him that I’ll wear

that title proudly,

as I climb the park bench, 

reach my arms out

as far as I can, 

his ever protective 

hand on my hip 

to steady me 

as I snap one 

more picture.
