Poetry - Where Do The Leaves Go

Where Do the Leaves Go?

In, “Where Do the Leaves Go?” I wander from place to place searching for a home. A place I can call my own.

Where Do the Leaves Go? Reminds me of all the places I been, wanting to call it home, only to pick up my feet and walk forward. And still, I know there is another place I will gravitate to, and settle momentarily. It has been many paths I’ve walked, and yet I know I will place footprints where she will walk in mine.

Where Do the Leaves Go?

These leaves have no home. I live at the end of

branches, where I break from and flutter where the 

breeze carries my life.

I’ve found myself in the city alongside the park bench gazing.

Wondering where they come and go

scuffing feet on sidewalks to nowhere.

It’s not for me.

In the new budding of me.

Among blue, and in between sifting clouds.

Answers formed. The sunrise splattered light.

A place air moved freely with no edges.

An earthy pathway defines the silhouette of subsistence.

Stepping lightly, I look into the trees, its scattered lines.

It’s me.
