Title: The Fallen Leaf -poem
Post by: heartsongjt on October 26, 2018, 02:43:48 PM
The Fallen Leaf

I fell to the ground
and a gentle breeze
lifted me above the tree
that once nurtured the
life in me.

But for a while, I was
the warmest color of green
Then a gusty wind came
and I floated to the ground
where the warmth from the sun
turned me to a golden brown.

Soon I will be a part of
something bigger than a leaf
I will be nourishment for the
green leaves, blowing in the
breeze....as I feed the roots
of the tree - that once fed me.
