Leaf

if I were to be reborn
I would like to be a leaf

a brief but blissful life
under sun and shower
slowly unfurling
useful

when the cold snaps me
I will be brilliant crimson and ochre
and fall away
unscarred

Seasonal Haiku

arbor rain smells
of chlorophyll and earth
worms and robins
muddied sneakers

a snowflake falls
on an early
snowdrop

lackadaisical:
a chime lounges
on a windless day

elegant trees shed
teardrops of red
and ocher

Note: It’s been a while…I hope you all are well. =)
