The Beauty of a Fallen Leaf

Fallen leafThe beauty of a
fallen leaf is that
it is singly unnoticeable
till you bend and pick one
and hold in your hand….
It will speak to you,
tell you the stories of
the rain, the tree, the wind
and the birds…
It will tell you about the
lovers who sat near by
and kissed as if alone…
The mother and her kid in a
stroller secure with nature…
The guy who walked
his dog that way…
All those feet that
trampled it to glory
as they made imprints of
their own stories…..
It will talk to you about
the machines that never
paused and drove over it…
It will tell you that even when
You are fallen, you can have
so much of life left that you
can make a beautiful meaning
of your existence –
