Leaf Litter

Leaf litter on the ground,
birled by winters breath.
Everything underfoot damp,
relinquishing life hard won.
Discarded by seasons life,
replenishing the consumed.
Damming rivulets journeys,
to lazy wide rivers regret.
Water tracing paths anew,
soaking through past lives.

Crystalline strands pullulate,
with each days abbreviated light.
Icy breezes halt waters progress,
interim defeat of rivers desire.
Leaf and water attain new focus,
sculptures in nature for all to view.
Ice crystals holding leaf enslaved,
’till season aspires to new themes.
When springs warm sighs return,
and rivers thirsty desires are met.
