Old Leaf New

Old Leaf New

A leaf on a stream
drifts along,
going where the current
will, from old to new,
its current state all
that’s seen in its reflection.

While, unlike the leaf,
my own past is
in every decision
I make moving forward,
and I choose the course
I take.

Check out crow’s February 2017 Open Mic at Words and Feathers.
