Memories of a leaf

Memories of a leaf
An impression that speaks.
A story it tells.
Of a journey that never ends.
Meaning it seeks.
Carried far by sand and rain.
Set free from life’s chain.
Lifted by a steady breeze.
Like a drifting feather.
Floated devoid of  direction.
Its friends on its side.
Took turns to greet the ground.
Faded away one by one.
The lone leaf persisted.
Leaving its testimony in sand.
Not erased on land.
To be cherished.
As a leafy memory.
To stay green forever.
