The Frivolity of Leaves Falling in Springtime


In a climate where

Rain comes in summer,

I see leaves falling diagonally

In a slight breeze from the east,

In springtime.

The significance of this

Escapes me at the moment,

Just as the significance

Of a lot of things

Escapes me.


Could it be

That this particular angle

Is somehow more advantageous

To the leave´s decent?

Or is it that

The intentions of the breeze

Is that more leaves should fall

On the other side of the tree?


Or is it that

The mind of the universe

Seemingly so serious much of the time

Occasionally needs

To engage in random

And frivolous play,

Laughing gleefully

As the leaves flutter,

This way and that,

In wild abandon.
