Life and Death

A leaf, floating downwards, comes to rest upon grass. Escapee cutting off the bonds, unaware of its impending demise; the umbilical cord severed, now page-pressed memory; dried skin cracking, A leaf.

Yes, the vibrant colors of fall fool me, I forget the leaves soon wither-

Sad that something living becomes so dried up and dead - wonderful comparison of Life and death! Much like a human. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

Ah yes, but it feeds the ground and nourishes next Spring's births. Thanks.
