The Leaf

On the tallest branch

a leaf trembles

larger than the rest

I realize it is not the same


Blown from some other

taller tree

within the silent still

it is different and alone


Across the way

its sisters


blow freely as one


I glance back

a moment passes

until I see the silence

the stillness

of what once blew

before it trembled

that lonesome other leaf
