​Wishing from a leaf

The leaves swirl from the trees

Waiting to be caught

For when a leaf is caught

You can wish for a great many things

The leaves wait and swirl slowly

To the ground

If they are not found

They cannot be wished upon

Their colors indicate

How they might

Bring happiness to one's heart

Yellow, for the joy of play

Green, for the strength of health

Red, for the hope in passion

And orange, for the gift of faith

Which one will swirl

Into your hand

The next time

You make a wish?
