Shimmering Leaves

Looking high at the top of a tree Leaves glisten dancing in the sun Seems the rest of them stand shaded Quiescently as their day is done~ Giant Fichus grows steadily higher Gaining momentum in the bright sun Extending branches lingering out A thick winding trunk of merging fun~ Piling underneath this grand tree Fallen dead leaves bathe in the sun Congregating turning to mulch One more purpose they’re almost done~ Imagining superb life unfair Comparing life to leaves in the sun Like the sparkling trees tallest leaves Position has bearing on every one~
