leaves following another leaving

so it is that each simple

day I can step outside my door,

walk to the nearest goodly tree

and pull down a leaf or two,

holding them, turning them,

memorizing the memories

I’ve already etched in my heart,

wishing all the time I could

so easily take your hand

as I take these leaves.
