The Stone And The Leaf

The stone

falls straight.

Barreling through,

space and time.

Forcing a path.

Transfixed

on a known

destination.

No detours

or distractions.

No chance

encounters.


The leaf

takes its time.

Whimsically floating

through the air.

Exploring

a graceful path.

Too present

to be concerned

with the destination.

Enjoying

the twists and turns.

Trusting the winds.

Delighting

in every surprise

of the journey.
