Nature Human

The leaves on my neighbors maple tree
are still green in late November. They cling
to the branches, a child clutching Mother’s skirt.
Determined to decide the time of their own demise,
they curl themselves toward the sky seeking sunlight
and star shine, studiously avoiding the fall to earth.
