192 The Thinking Leaf

I am a leaf. Today 29 February, according to the Lunar Calendar, it is a rare day.   I am a leaf, but now In advanced age, I am Reptilia, with odd slow head, bloodless and textured like a lizard.


Now chameleon in form, and in habitual dilemma of contrary thinking,  I am the leaf who wants to have brightest winged eyes like a Peacock butterfly, but I am a leaf.

I am a leaf. Under constant reinvention, now older, smaller, I am a fragment,  a fading profile of a fine head portrait of a young African female. She must have been an amazing butterfly. Graceful, earthy, but delicately edged, she chooses careful disintegration in her watercolour  passing. She is my mind, my memory. I am a leaf.
