Ribbed: Yellow Leaf on Grate

I just about fell over it, 
this yellow leaf 
fallen on the grating beneath it.
I saw it as I got off the bus downtown
and stopped mid-stride to take
its picture. My little camera
is usually always at hand,
either in my coat pocket or a tote,
and people had a confused look as I 
drew the little black object to record  - What?
Oh, well, it's fall, it's rainy and I liked
the way the little thing looked
against the shiny steel ribs
and the tan pebbles of the grate.

It makes for a great image, so it doesn't matter what a passerby might have thought!
