"leaf" by Lauren McBride, Frequent Contributor

midair reveals
the spiderweb:

Poet's Notes: The idea for this poem came to me while taking a walk. The first half popped into my head on the spot, but the words to finish the thought remained elusive. Eventually I settled on belief and prayer to parallel leaf and midair. A few revisions later, the editor suggested that the words could become a leaf-shaped concrete poem, and then this work finally took shape - pun intended.
