Little Leaf

Pz-avatarby Rhodora73705 Jan 2014

Oh little leaf swaying gracefully in the wind

swaying back and forth, where do i begin?

with such grace you flutter up above so high

as then you break free and take to the sky

oh little leaf so young and so afraid

the danger alongside freedom is oh so great

no destination can ever be known

where you go and where you be blown

oh tiny evolution of green to yellow

up high you were and now down below

so great was your height yet now flat on the ground

where your magnificence can no longer be found

oh burden the sight of your demise

the bitter cold of the ground full of lies

oh little leaf now immobile and have no voice to be heard

leaving this life of yours without a single word
