Chapter 3
Ode to the burning leaf

Ode to the burning leaf

Splashes of color,

The color of fall.

Falling so gently,

Down.

Into the explosions of fire.

The wind sweeps you down,

Barely missing the untouched

Non burning land.

You fall on the hot,

Burning,

Surface.

You start to smoke,

And curl up in protection of yourself.

The fire engulfs you color turning you from blood red to a black.

You become weak and fall apart.

Popping like tiny fireworks.

Until you wither away.

Till you are gone into ashes.

But you are not quite gone.

Your remains are blackness,

But you

You

Are still there.
