A Leaf




But a leaf

In time’s wind; gusting at

Moments; soft, silent zephyrs of melancholy swaying

Then twisting in pirouettes of free-style drifting, fleeing, seeking, always searching

Yet, oblivious to it all…lost in the moment of the fall…lost to the design

Of my ways, my pointed, prickly ended efforts and failures…

Only aware in this time, in this span

Of falling simply


I am


    Only As

Very poignant reflection on the duration and spiraling nature of our lives - less a calamity bringing it to an abrupt end. The bible describes our lives as vapour, mist or a flower that wilts and withers. Your falling leaf analogy fits ably.
