After the storm

broken and fallen
litters my way.

Cars yielding humbly
as if for reason
but for a moment
only today.

The river returned to its borders
The air breathes calmly again
The clouds let me see the sky

Broken leaves
like a moment in time.

Now we see
but soon we will only remember
because just like the river
life wanders forward
It never looks back.
