Lone Leaf – prikcab (Ian Perlman)


this cold bright morning

has me following a lone leaf

with crisped edges 

scratching the pavement

as it tumbles down the street


has it lost its way 

as autumn is chased away

by winter’s winds

I hope it finds a settling place

and warmth in togetherness

    This poem by Ian Perlman, posted at Go Dog Go Cafe, felt especially timely after my morning walk today. It appears that all the leaves here in Charlotte dropped off the trees overnight, leaving behind a startlingly bare winter landscape.
