Leaves are twinkling

                               and

                      almost shimmering

           as they shiver in their last days.

The wind brought in fall and released the raindrops

                we waited so long for……………………

With an audible whooosh, the wind tugged at the leaves

                            that hung on

           with the last of their strength

      and then gladly released their hold

                   to be swept up

           in a vortex of wind and raindrops.

Then, cascading to meet the parched land,

the leaves raced the raindrops to the ground.
