a look in the final moments of the life of a leaf
As soon as the tree let loose,
the leaf began its final journey.
At the mercy of the Autumn winds,
it floated gently;
hither and yon
toward the ground far below.

Others were falling around it
each with a jig of its own.
Passing by its companions,
it acknowledged them with a wave.

And continued on
with its whimsical ballet.

Surfing from current to current
the leaf danced upon the breeze;
executing loop-de-loops
and summersaults
         twirling,
                   whirling,
                             pirouetting,
waltzing with the wind.

Until gently it landed
amongst a pile of its fellows.

So much delight taken in this flight
                             on this, its final day.
