A Leaf


Walking down the sidewalk

I stopped as the mist rose

Watching a leaf fall

Through the mist.


I am like that leaf

Floating softly over the paths

of yesterday.


Observing much,

but saying little,

Of what I would like to say.


Someone kicks me,

I fly off to see tomorrow,

In another place,

Not knowing where I’m bound.


Keep writing the songs that are in your heart.

Peace be with you.
