Beyond the Rainbow: Leaf


Little leaf

You are far from home

Do you remember your brothers and sisters

Fanned across the sky

Like a great green headress.

Do you remember being one of many

But many of one

All connected to the great trunk

Of Life.

Do you remember the dark damp earth

Beneath sight of sun

The roots tangling


So far from you,

But still you.

Do you remember, little leaf

So far from home

That the whole world

Runs in your veins?
