Being as though…

leaf

Being as thought a blade of grass,

blowing, bending, twisting

to fit into the thatch of lawn

yet really not fitting at all

one blade alone in field of green.

 

Being as though a leaf in autumn,

falling free, gently, gliding

towards others gone before

excited to be joining them

somehow too colorful to blend.

 

Being as though fire hot as scorching sun,

setting, lighting ablaze, igniting

creating joy and fear at once

warming some, enflaming others

too hot to touch for very long.

 

Being as though summers cooling rain,

quenching thirst, feeding, giving

bringing relief and aggravating too

everyone is at first glad in its arrival

yet equally pleased it passed away.
