Wishful Thinking (poem)

'journey of the fallen leaf back to the branch' - Franz Wright

After reading an elegy
which had me in tears
I came across these words.
Somehow they apply.
Maybe when we exit,
we meet our dead
gone before us - leaves
back on the branch. A lot
of maybe in my philosophy
And then the living
catch up with us.
Seems fair. I never met
Franz Wright but I'm
a fan. Maybe it is
wishful thinking. It's
autumn here and the leaves
are multi-coloured
on and off the trees.

- Andrew
