in silence

a leaf falls

through the light

haiku – November 2

wind revealed

dancing leaves swirl

others stay attached

Leaves unfurling like a thousand green spinnakers

Catching the wind

Each leaf its own tale

I read these trees

Through fresh green pages

Like reading the whispers of others

In this consequence of narrative

Where each tale is separate but connected

Like each green flag is anchored on branches

I hear each murmur that comes my way

Each note and comment adds to the story

That I piece together organically

So that even as I revel in today’s fresh green garments

I read foreshadowings of rusty autumn in the wind

When these solitary voices will be stripped away

And nobody will remember spring’s tale

      Flag the understory

      Adorn long fingered branches like engagement rings

      Promising a night to come when they’ll unfurl

     Spread out deliciously

     Throbbing with the coursing of sap through stem

     To recline in the freshness of uncloaked nakedness
