Free Falling

The raven is admired for its intelligence. It’s said to have the ability to predict the future. In some culture, it stands for death as it’s often seen surveying the battlefield after the fight is over. In another, it stands for hope that, amidst the carnage. life springs anew. Dear one, in the afterglow of passing summer, i wrote this poem for you.

can’t stop the leaves from falling
nature has the final say
even on a fair autumn morning
the wind blows them all away

brown, red, yellow, or green
their color doesn’t matter
on these grounds where they now lay
they are dead, they breathe no longer

the tree made leafless looks grim
branches pointing up to heaven
once again, it would need a trim
for next spring, so says the raven
