Noisy fall

 I was walking across the parking lot here at work on a pretty day recently, when I noticed clattering from the small wooded area between the lot and the road.  At first I thought it was birds or squirrels in the trees, but after stopping to watch, I realized if was the noise of leaves dropping.  There was no breeze at all; the yellow and orange leaves were just falling at a steady trickle, and rattling through their unfallen brethren on their way down. As still and quiet as it was in the neighborhood, the noise was comically (to me) loud.
