leaves in fall


i step between
bright rained leaves
your heart trail
outlines left like a snail
so i know
where you've been

i want to know
how you make that
imprint smudge
of life
just so, i tried
with brush and brown
water dribbled
down to leaf soaked
failure of perfection

i hope tomorrow
to learn the
stroke that stops
steps, rendering you
as smudged lines
on concrete imprinted
so i know
you'll be
