The Leaf
kripto

The wind blows, down goes the leaves though
 1
As they flutter towards the ground
 2
Tussling and turning along with the breeze
 3
As they slowly coast down, and gives into the bottom, with little sound
 4
However, if all is silent, you can hear the leaves contact with each breeze and finally the final contact with the ground
 5
 
 
And as it settles to its final position, and its edges all fall down
 6
And adjust to its new home low, supported by the dirt on the ground
 7
Bound to laws of gravity, without a force it shall remain
 8
No need to worry, no thoughts mean no brain
 9
 
 
But the earth forever changes
 10
And a gust of wind propels the leaf to again set sail
 11
into the wind, to float until a force comes and defies its need to continue and go on
 12
blocking its path to again send it crashing, accelerating as gravity finally ends its journey
 13
 
 
The lonely leaf, now cemented into a puddle of mud
 14
Watching an animal come closer as its foot steps, and sends it unto another adventure, into another untold taleā€¦........of a leaf
