The Way of the Fool

The Way of a Fool

A leaf flutters from a tall tree,

Free for ten blinks of an eye,

He doesn’t see it come to rest gently

At his feet,

Having lost interest

To the consumption of time

He’ll never get back

In this forest he never

Wanted to be in.

Such is the way of a fool.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
