The leaves of life.


Twisting leaf in wind.
Green, it moves with limb and twig
youth has strength to spare.

Twisting leaf in wind.
Red, it leaves its lofty perch
color to be seen.

Twisting leaf in wind.
Brown, it’s blown from place to place
no one knows it’s there.

  1. This is a beautiful picture! I love the way
    the fence just stand out.
    The leaves are falling off the trees here,
    or are just turning brown, it is terrible.
    Thanks for sharing.
