Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.

The Leaf

As a leaf on a tree

It’s bright vibrant green

Soaking up the sun

Full of health and vitality

It witnesses many days

The drip of the soft rain

That caresses its surface

Providing a refreshing cascade

The iridescent glow

Of droplets backlit with the sun

The season begins to change

The night becomes longer

No longer the brilliant green

It is now cloaked

In a coat of many colors

Brilliant orange and yellow

Drifting softly towards the ground

The wind catches and carries

Its precious load to the water

The swift running creek below

Caught by the breeze

The leaf falls

Back and forth it dances

With an unseen partner

Until it gently settles

On the surface of the waters
