Time And Wind Drift Alike (tanka set)

some call it rare
broken leaves in the wind
but much rarer
to move with the current
of our own character

where the winds sweep
these lonesome autumn leaves
abandoned by will
the many miles we go
before coming to rest

without choice
the wind carries along
in its sails
our hopes and dreams
and reasons too

so many seasons
and more to pass us by
as time slips
and slips to a better past
that has slipped further behind
