Lone Leaf: A Triply Inspired Poem

A triply inspired poem, and a post that’s less tasty and more truthful.

Lone Leaf

And the pale fall leaf floated in

On an early winter breeze


Or too soon, perhaps

Into the concrete forest

The steel sky enveloped,

Her tree

A distant mirage

She landed with a soft thud

And waited

For the snow to quietly blanket her

Or the winds to change

And catch her hand again
