"So Leaf Subsides" written as a Rhaiku, a 3-stanza poem consisting of a haiku, a rhymed stanza, and a free verse stanza
the sounds of change
Mesmerized by the fire under the mantle
I'm awed that death should hold such beauty.
The miracle of change remains the same.
Describing the world around me with brevity
Nothing is more comforting than the sound of crickets in clover.
