Leaf Fall

The Puka Tree 
entwined around the Kohekohe.
Reaching higher to the sky than its host.
Puka drops a solitary leaf.
It falls,
not a sound.

On forest floor,
carpet of fallen leaves.
Some fresh, 
others just humus now.
Yet from humus good things grow.

So let this life of mine
let go it's leaves of self,
redundant to life, not inspired.
Come now Holy Spirit
nourish me 
deep within.
