It doesn’t have to be softer
more perfect or illuminated
brighter, wittier, flickering
louder, or more precisely defined
This leaf that is falling with a visible tear
it is as valuable as anything else
you have seen on this tree of life.
This tree has many leafs.
Each one displaying its perfect
atonement with the tree of life.
over the last days the edge of autumn has
touched everyone in her invisible way
the colder air has weaved its interspace
into the hot sticky summer yumminess
draining our fluids, drying the earth,
preparing for the vibrant colourful display
of leaves being tossed by the wind
while the strong trees hold the Earth
and support her with their roots.
