Fallen Leaves 2016b

Fallen Leaves 2016b

beneath the trees all 
   lying on the ground,

      cold and wet upon
   the autumn earth,

i see them in their
      naked death,

   lying there alone,
dead and forgotten 

      that was then.
i see it coming back.

   today i saw again 
and photographed
red leaves on trees.

      beside the river;
which seems to live
   in seasons too,
flooding in springtime.

never quite the same,
though the patterns
      seem unchanged.
