Each fall, I dread seeing the leaves leave my fine old oak tree outside my west window.

They turn a bring red before they fall gracefully to the ground.

Nevertheless, I couldn't help but rejoice today as I drove to work on this windy fall day just after a rain.  The leaves were having a ball in the streets.  They were actually dancing daring the cars to run over them.  They continued to dance even after being run over.  

It was truly a morning to celebrate this beautiful time of year, and to wonder if we will ever be as free as those leaves of all colors cut off from Mother Tree.

Dancing leaves
Swirling around
The streets and streams
Frolicking forever it seems.

Mortal beings
Watching in wonder
Seeing the season's
Ending impending.

We see how leaves
Fall far from the trees
Feasting on freedom
Of death in the breeze.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
