leaf on water

water’s smooth

silky and shining brightly


the sun’s golden gaze

tree nearby

its leaves yellow


shaking slightly

in the wind

a leaf brakes off, a rebel

separates from the slender branch

flutters and spirals down

a grace ful dance


back and forth

slowly, slowly

waiting for a breeze

then woosh!

and the leaf lands perfectly in the


sending perfect ripples

rolling through the pond.
