Still A Mystery

Still A Mystery

I think of the Leaves rustling and then falling in the silence of the cold November night…it has to happen…and soon they will be gone…that’s how it is…this fleeting thing…I know everything has to end…and then I look out the window and, there in the dark sky, I see the moon…it is still a mystery to me…
