Little leaves

Little leaves falling down

floating lightly without sound


Keeping in touch with the wind in time

sheltering plants beneath the ground.



Floating slowly as the breeze picks them up

fading away with seasons divine.



Then looking up to the trees so high

little leaves bloom from the branch


to start again with a new season now

as the flowers bloom and keep all sound


the wind  takes control and starts all over again.

    The cycle is perpetual with the seasons. You have described everything nicely. Just one item: your word "tree's" in the seventh line needs no apostrophe since the word is only pluralized with no genitive or possessive case being present.
