Leaf

Lately I hung clinging tightly
Against small gusts of fortune
Torn off by time and summer’s going
I circle and dance like a leaf in the wind.

I carry a seed, fearful courage -
A wayward hope, full of tomorrow.
Carry me wind, I have no branch -
Seeking fertile ground, sheltering home.

[Hata Bildir]
