FALLING LEAVES~by Heather Burns


 

 

FALLING LEAVES

Leaves keep falling
in my garden

one by one
they cascade to the
ground

silently
lying in wait

slowly
cluttering my thoughts

begging
pick me up please
before I vanish

standing at a loss

at last
understanding

as I caught
a fluttering leaf
before it wilted
into tomorrow.
