breeze and leaf

the breeze is playing tease
with the last yellow leaf
clinging to the surety
of its branch

fly with me
come fly

the breeze speaks wistfully
of travel
and of distance
other trees
and warm green fields

fly with me
come fly away

seduced
the flight is all tumult
and skelter
pell-mell and fury
until the ground

and yet
it was a journey
after all
