The Promise of a Lifetime


 

Silent air frozen in time

The last leaf of the winter

The final stages of rime

Locked in its white frost

Pleading to breathe

For a droplet and a gust of wind

To give it a new lease

The end of a season

The end of the wintery wrath

Beamed down on the leaf a ray of sun

Life that it gave

A lifetime of promise

Smiles etching on its face

Of a leaf that was done.
