FALLING... falling

It’s raining outside. Or is it? Sounds like rain, but where there should be raindrops, only tree leaves fall, making a pitter-patter sound against the ground. The leaf of a Northern red oak spins a tight spiral as it falls; white oak makes a wider spiral; Southern red oak drifts aimlessly, guided by the weight of its heavier leafstalk. The leaf of sourwood floats, rocking back and forth in the air like a boat riding a current of air. A hickory leaf, compound and heavy, falls straight, landing with a light splat. There go some maple leaves, fluttering down, laying a skirt of yellow around their tree. I could watch this all day. ~K
