Oh Leaves - by Roger Davies

Oh Leaves
Some say you are factories
but I say you are prayer flags
strung from Mystery
humming to whatever eternal tune
the wind strums you to
....weathered by rain & sun ....
given the living gift
of the promise of withering,
of falling to the ground,
of becoming ground
and like the myriad prayers
each wheeling in the Shining Light
you breathe in unison
you pulse and open yourselves
towards the next breath.
