Two Tangled Leaves


Two Tangled Leaves

Two tangled leaves

Tumbling

Together in silence

To the ground

Clinging to each other

Against the pull

Of the relentless wind

Such melancholy

Falls upon me

Trees stand bare

And cold

The long autumn shadows

Dark pools

Lapping at my feet

This season of endings

Always alone now

Under steel grey

Mourning skies

Lost deep in my memories

I stand in the darkening

And follow their journey

Those two tangled leaves

For the longest of times
