Leaf

I am a small leaf
On this spreading tree
Catching sunlight
To feed sweetness
To the roots

My existence,
fate-bound to the tree
Now the tree is sick
many leaves are turning
brown and dry
falling to the ground

I cling to my branch
and reach for the Sun
to bring more light

A summer leaf cannot live
in another way
and now is not yet
the season of withering
