One Act At A Time


One Act At A Time

The yellow leaves

Are falling

Dancing

With elegance

And grace

Weightless

Their descent

Seems gentle

Drifting

At the will

Of the wind

A slow pirouette

Their music

Plays in my heart

Soaring

As the tragedy unfolds

Oblivious

They take the stage

And one act at a time

Give voice

To their own

Inevitable

Demise
