FRESH OFF THE PAGE: leaf song

A red carpet of maple leaves waits undisturbed, Hartford, NY


leaf song

a gentle tapping
as the breeze blows,
on soft golden wings
leaves fall, coming
to rest on hard slate

as I watch, listening
more and more drift
down from the trees,
the sky, singing,
towards their end

scattered, shuffled,
under bright sunshine,
making sweet music
their last, I know,
on earth forever
