Falling Away

On the branch, so much beauty

Orange, gold, red, bright and light

I smile and awe at you

Your transformation from green to here complete.


And then I cling to you, fretting

No do not go, the time was short and fast

Your beauty so lovely yet fleeting

Don’t let go just ye


And yet you do, you let go

You release your hold  and sail away

Carried by wind or gently floating

Down, down, back toward the earth you sprial


You may lay at rest until the wind swoops you up

Carries you away to a new place of rest

Just going with the flow, flitting this way and that

Slowly crinkling into deep brown


And then comes the moisture and storms

To beat you down, you do not resist

You go willing back and back

Back to the beginning and the eternal earth.
