after the fall

After the Fall

3-10-14

 

relief

like a leaf

tumbling

over and over

its journey over

piled in grief

becomes belief

warming new life

the pain of rain

slicing into splatter

one last time

but a single fall

giving its all

in a river below

a nourishing flow

a broken branch

becoming fodder

for an otter

to make a home

not rotting alone

a sheltering zone

all

a fall

becoming more

than before

after

what we call

death
