the new leaf

the new leaf is not jaded

like a child it has not learned to fear the rain

no storm has wrecked and ravaged it

yet somehow it knows what to do

in the case of rain

somehow it still bends in the breeze

clinging to all that it knows with all that it has

and in the summer the sun gives all its glory to the new leaf

and in the fall the leaf is no longer new

and still it knows what to do

make way for the winter

and change a dazzling array of golden amber hues

and fall

down

down

down

into the impossible ground
