(Genesis: When I saw two falling leaves
swirl around each other as they fell
to the ground, they reminded me of
two lovers dancing.)
They clung tightly
Knowing when they leapt
It would be forever
Flirted with each other for months
Waiting for just the right moment
For the ultimate release
Then it came
In a reckless rush
They simply let go
Gave in to a power
Greater than them
Caught in a swirling
As the world rushed by
Reveling in every motion
In the beauty all around
And in their partner
Felt a freedom
They had never known
Then softly touching
The earth and each other
In a long and final embrace.
