When his daring leaf friends had all fallen to the ground,

the anxious autumn leaf yelled:

“Wait for me! I’ll be there soon!”

He was growing eager

to twirl and float through the air!

“But before I let go,

 I’d like to know,

was it fun,

 when you flew?

Getting no response, the leaf became frightened.

“Do you hear me, my friends?

Are you there?”

He hung his little head, quivered and said:

“I am lonely and I am afraid!

I need to let go,

but I want to know,

did it hurt,

when you fell?

Did it hurt?”

My response to today’s one-word prompt: Daring
