Leaves

Written by: Vincent Howard

Leaves
pouring
down like rain
showering me
with a fresh new day.
seasons come, seasons go
carrying more than we see
hold endless possibilities.
changing our eyes to see fresh once more
old problems always run straight for my door
but before they leave they stop and recall
its over? no, just the start of fall.
ignorance never quick to leave
disguised as simple desire
all we long for, crave, need
plant a tiny tree
love, water, light
down like rain
pouring
leaves.
