Fall

I saw a leaf die today

dressed in her autumn splendor

She let go of her branch gracefully

no need of a breeze to help

I saw a leaf die today

with more integrity than most people

Knowing her season had come

that her death had a purpose

That she would come back as soil

for the next generation of leaves

I saw a leaf die today…
