Leaf

Gumleaf
Falls from the sky,
To land in my lap
Like a second chance.

Perhaps there is no meaning,
Just nature’s gift,
A reminder
Of something bigger
Than my tiny self,
Lost among the trees,
Scattered on the ground
Amongst leaf litter.

High above
In the waving branches
A new leaf grows,
Full of hope.
