Yellow Leaf: in memory of those massacred in Orlando

001

 

Yellow leaf in late June,

set apart from

all the rest, but taken in,

surrounded by the common

greens; folded into family

of tree; a oneness,

an embrace, a clapping

of their rainbow hands

as summer winds meander

random through the branches;

as raindrops gentle tap

each leaf—the green, the yellow,

the whatever shape or color

it might be.
