Veil of Leaves

Veil of Leaves

Behind the veil 
Of leaves
The sunlight is peeking
Through
Away from the hustle 
And bustle,
The day that awaits:
A swaying of branches
Rattling and shaking
The leaves
Not ready to leave,
I take another look
At bits of white clouds
And the blue sky
Up, behind— 
On the other side—
Of a veil I need
