At least it was a colorful death (#PoetryMonday*)

The leaf falls
twists, turns, tumbles
caught
       twined in the wind
held up
      
       momentarily
                            hopeful

Perhaps I can fly
it thinks
       perhaps
perhaps

       But no
alas it lands
at last
       to die
returning to the earth
returning to earth
returning
turning

  It's fall. The leaves turn and tumble. What more inspiration does one need to write a poem? Have you written one lately? Do you like this one? Talk to me in the comments!
