Awaiting the dawn

Fall leaves

Awaiting the dawn
Leaves flutter and spin
Light from the east a promise
For this thing to begin again

Travelling in the light
Of tenuous connection
To seeing the way bright or dark
Opaque through a reflection

Passing time passing days
Hold on to these illusions
That what we give and what we take
Will lead to clear conclusions

Wondering how the leaves can hold
Until another dose of sun
Withered yet secure until
New buds in time begun

Wind and trees and wind
This night sky be blowin’ thru
House of green crashed down
