‘Biophilia #9’ (August 2011)

Leaf floats down
Falling from the arcing tree
Gliding

On the air
No control over where it goes
Swirling

Twirling
Spinning round
Until suddenly hits the ground
Stops dead
Pausing
Breeze blows
Makes it twirl with renewed life…
Brief movement…
Before…
Lifting up into the space beneath the clouds
To flutter along with butterflies
Graceful movement
A ballet of nature
Until it descends once more
Silently landing amongst the ripples of the flowing river
Swept calmly along
For eternity
