Sunday Afternoon In Rattlesnake Canyon

By M. Thomas Ellis

Halfway down
I leaned against an old oak
unduly envious of it
and so much more.

I looked up
waited for an autumn leaf to fall
just one for me to focus on
but in its own time.

I was prepared to watch it tumble
end over brittle end
down to the creek below
curious what might happen next.

A breeze coaxed
the right leaf fell
I watched it catch the current
and drift out of sight.

You will always be my muse.
