Downward Fall


Drifting in the early autumn sunlight
Swaying care free harmlessly in mid air
Falling down in a constant plunge
Yielding downward with wind care
Twisted and whipped in numerous tosses
Flipped up in the air and slapped about
Descending to the earth dispute efforts
Still in a fall and dropped
Turning right for a few moments
Feeling the sun upon my face
Rolling left, tumbling around
Seeing the earth close to end my fate
Once green securely dangling
Now decayed and falling down
My arms once stretched outward
Now curled upward and round
My fall and drop has no whisper
My descent yells no sound
I’m just a leaf decayed by seasons
Dropping in the sunlight
Down…Down…Down
