October Leaf Story

October Leaf Story

every year the story
is nearly like years before
this time of year

stories of a distant war
across stormy seas

as vivid as the stars

as darkness finds
intensive colours
out of shadows

deep in the shade
we see colours
in a few small twigs

just at dark's edge 
the colour is intense

but still we can see
a dusky shape or two

at an edge of shadow
where light is rare
but still illuminating

what we almost can't see
a kind of miracle
