dead leaf

Leaves by the Riverbank

barbed blade and broken
midrib, cobweb netted vein
cover river sand in your story

dead leaf
Sitting by the river holding a dead leaf, imagining her story. A bud. A leaf proudly flapping in the wind, before falling to earth. Her decomposing body slowly eaten by fat beetles and caterpillars. Finally covered in river sand until a random human hand pulls her back to the light.
