A Leaf

A poem of death and rebirth

On an autumn afternoon
Warm afternoon sun streams down,
Wind blows,
Gusts in the trees,
Trees growing on mountaintops
A leaf is caught in the wind like a kite
It flies away from its mother tree
Is caught on the wind
Sent floating over the valley

Slowly it drifts
On invisible, wild air currents
The leaf spins, twists,
Rocks back and forth
All the way to the valley floor.
