Leaf

 

Michael Sander

 
A leaf slowly flutters towards the ground,
As its vibrant life is now at an end,
The once lush green of vitality is all but gone,
In its place the wilting brow of death,
The wind whisks away this tiny leaf,
Away from where it gave its life as but a mere servant,
To now settle gently upon the ground,
Where it is thought of no more.
