Leaf on the Water

You are a leaf on the water. Rippling, drifting with the current. You sail. Though you were once a leaf on the breeze, you are now a leaf on the water. Back then, you drifted with the current as you do now, but you were free to go up and down as well as side to side. Then, you were always falling. Now you are grounded. You are a leaf on the water. Surfing, held fast by the rocks. You drown. Though you were once a leaf on a tree, you are now a leaf on the water. Back then, you were held by careful branches, carried and fed by your tree, your mother. Then, you were ready to fall. Now you are grounded. You are a leaf in the mud.
