Allegory of an Oak Leaf

Russet oak leaf

Crisp-crunchy with age

Apparently yet intact

Uninterred

Atop ice coated snow cover

Flings itself repeatedly

Against steel chain-link

Valiantly battling caging

Asserts its rightful place

Usurped by circumstances

Dislocated by chance

Floating

Flying

FREE
