A Leftover Leaf

by Jim Rapp

A leftover leaf
skittered along the sidewalk,
left over from Fall.

Mother Oak at last
released it to seek its way
in a windy world.

With uncertain turns
it found its way to a small
covert from the wind.

There is shook as though
alive, one must observe it
keenly to discern.

It left on the next
wind gust to complete its tour:
ashes to ashes.
