Tale of the Leaves

Raindrops fall in violet and blue
smearing the storm amidst the
dew
roses of red fade to white
frozen, they shatter and fall

through the silence comes a
scream
a reoccuring nightmare’s
favorite dream
time will stand still but never
stop
forever keeps ticking away
autumn leaves fall in red and
gold
strange how warm suddenly
goes cold
crackling under the heavy feet
of the sun and her morning
rays
they try to tell us stories of
long ago
but what stories could a leaf
really know
we chose to ignore them, so
they whisper instead
to the butteflies who pass them
by
stardust falls in silver
iridescence
accompanying it, bittersweet
jasmine incense
whirls of smoke drift towards
the night sky
trying to catch the moon
footsteps etched in silver
powder
with each new print they
scream a little louder
“Ouch!You know it really hurts
when you walk all over
yourself…”
