Tale of the Leaves

Raindrops fall in violet and blue
smearing the storm amidst the 
roses of red fade to white
frozen, they shatter and fall
through the silence comes a 
a reoccuring nightmare's 
favorite dream
time will stand still but never 
forever keeps ticking away
autumn leaves fall in red and 
strange how warm suddenly 
goes cold
crackling under the heavy feet
of the sun and her morning 
they try to tell us stories of 
long ago
but what stories could a leaf 
really know
we chose to ignore them, so 
they whisper instead
to the butteflies who pass them 
stardust falls in silver 
accompanying it, bittersweet 
jasmine incense
whirls of smoke drift towards 
the night sky
trying to catch the moon
footsteps etched in silver 
with each new print they 
scream a little louder
"Ouch!You know it really hurts
when you walk all over
