falling leaves or love

hard to let go

cupping my tin mug

still steaming

one hundred crimson sunsets

curl into Winter

blowing in the sunlight—

spiral of leaves

the shadows of leaves

drift over the bottom

upon yellow leaves

my cupped hands

the last leaf falls

one by one from the branch—

first snow
