Leaves

 

They feel their life draining,

 

Their color changing.

 

Their mother letting them go

 

To save herself.

 

They peak at the ground

 

Far away

 

A long jump

 

Their brothers take the leap

 

Early

 

The wind takes them away

 

His courage

 

The wind chills

 

They rustle

 

They whisper

 

“Let’s go too.”

 

They gather their courage

 

And they jump

 

Together

 

And the wind takes them away

 

 

 

                                Leaves
