Bird-leaves

Perhaps the leaves are really
domesticated birds,
content and still
(with only a rustle here and there),
until the wind reminds them
they were not meant
to be tied with twigs to a wooden post -
no better than a leash├Ęd hound -
so they flutter their wings implacably
until the daemon passes on.
