falling leaves

we know 
that falling leaves
speak of death
in a season..
then we wonder
are we falling 
as  the leaves..
falling also with
 autumn beauty..?

we see veins 
in each leaf
circulation channels..
no more flowing from
a nurturing tree..
a branch from its
root now cast away..
and we wonder
where is our
root as our 
nourishment fades..?

similarities abound
we and the leaves..
 fearful we are
with our hidden root..
yet we wonder
have we found
 vision and courage..
beholding anew
 creation's falling beauty
light's filtered colors...?
