Today, I fell in love with a leaf.

I wish I was this leaf,
such an honourable profession,
servitude to the wind,
percussion dancing,
a resume of being a story teller,
a story absorber.

Ah yes, generous leaf,
leaves it’s secrets with the tree,
drains it’s lifeblood through its veins,
withers away a cancerous severing,
a soldiers sacrifice,
on the front line of tales and fables,
is happy to be trodden  on,
crushed and become mulch for the tree.

A lover never really leaves their beloved,
it just shares its stories around with others,
before returning back to the source.

-W.E.

 

So this actual leaf just floated through my window today as I sat in the car and fell on my lap……literally! Yes it is a huge leaf!
Perhaps because it wanted to share a large story.
The colours and placement couldn’t have been more perfect.
