The Brown Wood

                           -- For Diane Di Prima
Rain falls
Through turned leaves
Something green
Gone gold
In the mist
At the end of October

Isn't it strange
As the day darkens
How the unexpected
Sound of droplets
Increases
The sense of loss

For the brown leaves
For cupped words
       ~
