A gentle little autumn shower

a flock of friendly little clouds
each carrying a minimum of rain
basked in early morning light
and scattered it around

a breeze
a whisper really
tickled the leaves
on the trees
gold-glowing leaves
trembling
in the gold morning light

a single leaf took leave
of its tree
it leisurely drifted down on the breeze
till it came to rest
in rippling rings of water

a barely visible blanket of mist
rose from the lake
shrouding the golden leaf
and its rippling reflection

and one by one
friendly little droplets of rain
added countless silent rippling rings
to the misty surface
of the lake
