Coin Leaves

Copper penny
Golden coin
Dangle from the branch.
Metallic paper
Holding fast
Quick to find the ground. 

Sway as you will
Leap when you can
Searching for the earth.
You all will fall
When this is done
And join the rotting soil.

You come and go
Without fail
Such promise is repose.
Shining, glittering, 
Shriveling
Welcoming earth's rest.

Trade me,
Catch me,
Watch me fall
These coin leaves everywhere.
They are for beauty 
Or raking work
Or could they be much more?

Sustenance, life
Creation,
They are everything you are.
Copper penny
Golden coin
None enduring as you thought.
