#21 of 365 – “leaves”

“leaves”

 

wish

that I

could release,

what has long needed

to fall.

old

and lacking color,

I cling

to virgin smells

of green,

and gold,

and brilliant flights

of red.

faded

and brittle,

they dangle,

starving

for an end,

while I, choking

sweet change

of its beauty,

sit angry

that my leaves

have already died,

and are waiting,

simply,

for me

to let

go.

    Love this.

    For myself, I am wondering, what possibilities are there when I can let go?
