Snow Flower

Snow covered aspen grove

Somewhere
high in the Eastern Sierras
an Aspen tree
lets its last
spade shaped
translucent, tattered
leaf
fall.

The stem
of that leaf
spears the snow,
like a flagpole,
anchored.

A soft breeze
pushes the leaf
spinning round and round,
twisting, turning,
without sound
or a moral compass.

Aspen Leaves in Snow
