Chasing the leaf.
Its like losing the perfect leaf. You’re running through the forest. You just had her in your hand, twirling her by the stem; a more perfect leaf has never fallen from a tree. Why did she fall? You want to make it last forever, you set the leaf down to reach for your camera. The wind takes her and you’re running through the forest. Wildly you snatch leaves from the air. Don’t hurt them! You examine them all like lost loves and hurl them back into chaos. There’s a thousand leaves before you and you know, you know with all your heart, one of them is perfect. And you let her go. For a moment even you are lost. Nature taunts you with her perfection but you had it. You still remember what it felt like in your hands; the light was her veins when she sighed in the breeze. A moment, a fading, an after image: not enough.
