Tomorrow and Tomorrow

“Tomorrow and Tomorrow” My Painted Leaf – Autumn 2018

A lonely leaf, yellow, orange, crimson red
Only half way in this world
The other half is dead
Fallen, disconnected
Weighed down by gravity and  time
And, the winds insist on tomorrow
And, tomorrow, and tomorrow
Even if tomorrow is the Day of the Dead
Even if the world turns into winter
Nothing to do but celebrate the dances of the seasons
And, watch while the tilt of the earth
Becomes a blanket for seeds
And, a nest for sprouting weeds
Someday, in the returning spring
