A Fallen Maple Leaf 🍁

I was fallen maple leaf
Once bold & beautiful,
And today, Here I lie in the ground
Lifeless, sunburnt & hopeless.

My reason for existence
was lost, I was just another
Piece of trash getting
decomposed to be a “nothing”

But, then I could feel as if
I was getting weightless, the wind
had dragged me up, and in
minutes I was in the air

Between the clouds
and above the maple tree
which once I decorated
for months.

When I was young and green
I have dreamed to fly
like a carefree bird
with no strings attached.

And today here I am enjoying
My every single dream
Which I have dreamed once, when I
was bright, beautiful & full of life.
