October Maple

October Maple

leaves behind leaves
still hang on these trees.

their colours amaze
as we see.


our questions
have no answers.

our answers
have no questions.


how foolish it
all seems except
we live and love.

possibly growing
into something
quite amazing.


ask me about it
in about one 
thousand years.


bones ache and 
eyelids grow sticky 
and will try to close,

almost without
will or conscious
thought.


so it must be, like 
leaves on the tree,

almost time to lie 
down and rest
