the last glimpse

a leaf
holding on to the edge of the harbor
last glimpses of silent hills mouthing a promise
to keep its secrets safe in the cradle of the valleys
waiting for waves,
roaring from a distance
counting down time to let go and be swept away
scooped up into the embrace of the open seas
before a slow spiralling dance
down into the abyss
