Lone Leaf on the Stoop


Stooped “C”

Descended rain anointed

Shiny as Lincoln penny stoop~

Hastily stepping up, sans tarry

To the curb, forlorn in wee hours

With fading stars, watered down

Has been night, being hustled

By an unhurried dawn

In the making~ 

A yellow leaf

Lay on the first

Stoop step, catching eye

Perfect in symmetry

Shriveled edges, Curled

In final disintegration

For integration

Into recycled
