Inverse Walk of the Fallen Leaf

We passed the time in shade unaware until

Russet skin descending in winter

to carbon upon the pavement, it

Caught the corner of my eye

Red passing to brown, falling

gray black dust in my lungs

Passing again I could not point to the fallen leaf

but it is part of me

Chlorophyll in the oxygen viscera
