The Falling Leaf

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

The falling leaf is caught by the wind
And a multitude of angles converge
To spin
And flitter
The delicate blade through time and space:
Combined with infinite variables
Predictability approaches chance
—fate approaches luck—
And the leaf approaches the ground within
Its graceful dance that lasts,
But once
For every falling leaf.
