Floating on a Mirror

This dry, wrinkled leaf
fell from its summer home.
Placed with perfection
by a carrying breeze.

Now it glides slowly 
down the smooth surface,
making a statement,
reflecting itself.

Its crisp sail
catching a breath.
The river's current 
steady, purposeful.

This golden leaf,
floating on a mirror,
ready for change,
accepting its destiny.

Willingly riding
the wind 
and water
with grace.
