speckled remains

for the first time,
it was seen.
a leaf [will]change[ed];

the green hue;
speckled remains.
like stars, burning
out.. and vanished.
bright in that sea
of yellow [to]dance[d]

how is it that this
thicket of views bears
witness to a great
like that speckle,
these ignorant
ashes sorted.

gone beyond,
for the benefit
of being.
