An Autumn Leaf’s Thoughts……..

Just a moment ago,
I was a gem in canopy’s crown.
Sipped dew at dawn,
glittered under bright sunshine.  
                              
Now, I float with soft wind,
swirling around these curvy paths,
inhaling the scent of mud,
as I whistle down a lea.
 
I see amazing views,
butterflies fluttering,
flowers smiling at me,
in a magical wonderland.
 
As I descend to the ground,
my new home.
I close my eyes for a timeless sleep,
for cycle of life will again proceed.
