Falling Leaves 

11/28/2016

Green leaves brighten

red and orange

and then dull to brown, 

falling from branches

and, in swirls of wind, 

rustling together

along the ground, 

scraping concrete paths,

and getting caught fast

in the cracks of walls. 

And after a time

they disintegrate – 

returned to the great presence

of earth, waters, sun, and sky. 

So, too, your green thoughts.
