These autumn leaves

Fresh out of the scanner, some fallen foliage, so vibrant in their demise. Such a poignant and apt reminder of this day four years ago and I can only repeat some lines of poetry I wrote:

"dare I say grief is akin to an October leaf?
a brisk detachment when the wind lets loose
that sudden and brutal impact with earth
the stalk forever reaching back"
