The Leaf

Too often we view nature from a distance
And although the full picture brings us pleasure
We neglect to venture close enough to see
That individual leaf that so fascinated us as children

    The magic of childhood is how everything is new, everything is yet unexplored and exciting. Too soon we become complacent and take all of nature for granted. This is a lovely reminder! Thanks for that!!

    As we hold it in our hands we see the tiny veins that hold it together, life is not a mystery at all when we take a closer look at nature, enjoyed your verse Craig, have a great Sunday hugs vie
