The Walk Of A Leaf

A leaf flutters down
Floating by the window
On an unseen and unknown
Streaming current of wind

It drifts along
Caring not which way it goes
Only letting the wind
Carry it on and on

It does not struggle or strain
Against the direction taken
Nor look back with regret
Over the path already traveled

It simply trusts the wind
Whether being blown
Over a wild, exhilarating path
Or being laid to rest

And wait for the next breath of windů
