Lines... Veins... Silky Strands...
One red leaf on a green tree,
Swaying all alone in the wind
One red leaf falling through the chilled fall air
Swirling in the twilight.
A busy spider in the early hours of dawn,
Silk webbing falling behind,
Swirling strand, into lines, into web of silk.
One red leaf is swirling,
Falling it twirls one more time,
A beauty...
A web with one red leaf
Intertwined in the silky strands.
