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.
