the sound of flight

heard a new sound today
or maybe I had heard it before
and hadn’t noticed

blown along by the wind
dead brown leaves
racing along the road

in gleeful laughter
they chased one another
in wild abandon

the sound of their feet
like fire crackling
or rain splattering

my heart started to sing
in tandem
in surprised recognition

their arabesques on my heart
echoes still
of such are riches
