Falling Leaves

Falling leaves

Leaves glittering in the sun

Fall upon me lightly, gently

A fire without warmth;

A life that is already dead.

They wink; they sparkle

Deceptively, as a palette of colors

Cheerfully sprinkles the earth

Only to be trampled upon;

To lose color and wholeness

Leaving no trace except

For the soft, inaudible, whisper

Of leaves decomposing in the night.

To Live

To live

You ask, what does it mean to live?

Is life the slow struggle of an ant

Carrying with all its might a crumb

Or is it the last explosion of a star

Before darkness displaces light?

Is life the march towards a tomb

Where nothingness holds sway

Or is it a butterfly’s easy flight,

The wondrous voyage of a day?

Is life the slow growth of a tree

Towards a dim source of light

Or is it plunging in a depth

That knows no touch or sight
