Leaves on Road by scraff1967

dried dull yellow big leaf maple

bouncing and skittering

backside up

on legs I can’t understand

following me

dancing the unpredictable wind into

my heart as gift

gorgeous scarlet vine leaf maple

doesn’t dance as well

and the exquisite tiny yellow weeping birch leaf

doesn’t dance at all

they bring different gifts

I can’t figure out if life is a gift to be slowly unwrapped, almost like a strip tease

Or a puzzle to be put together backside up so you can’t see the picture.
