Leaves gently drifting, their russet and golden colours lending contrast to the dullness of an autumnal day. Life passes before me and I see the beauty of children at play, the presence of young lovers, elderly couples enjoying their own company, the joyous laughter and the feel of a cooling, gentle breeze.
My life has been short compared to many yet I had been born, had grown to the fullness of youth and am now fading, assured, in time, others will take my place.
My final destiny has been reached. I am the leaf and it’s my time to fall.
