Autumn has come
And the leaves in all their glorious splendor
Wither and move along
To prepare a place for something more!
But do the old leaves die?
They only rest in the damp, cool earth
And wait to feed and live on
In the branches and buds of a new season
yet to come!

Does the tree feel pain
When the leaves, so beautiful
Become dry then fall?
Can it, perhaps, somehow know
Of abundance yet to come?

If so, this post on my Open Salon Blog will bring back happy memories for you and I invite you to pop over by clicking the link. Here are some photographs of New England’s colorful Fall leaves.
