Catching a Falling Leaf

Standing next to a tree that’s letting go of its cloak of summer,

 Seeing its branches,

Seeing its scars of battles,

And as it lets a tiny piece of clothing fall

to the floor,

You try to catch it…..

it will make you dance like a fool,

diving and twisting,

laughing like a child, unaware as you’re laughing,

forgetting all about your scars and dropping your guard….

When and if you grab one, you’re granted a wish –

You’ll smile and make the most heartfelt wish,

guilt not included.
