Time to go ...

It is dark and rainy today
and I hear our mild weather
is departing tomorrow
after clinging
so tenaciously
into this December

my mind wanders

to little birds' feet

 their delicacy

 and intricacy

 as they grasp


onto their perch

 until it is time to depart

sort of like my little redbud leaf
small and delicate 
still clinging tenaciously

it also decides 
it is time to go.

I will miss it.
