Seasons had passed, but still she held on
but no more should she
for life had shown her better days
with difficulty I saw her give in
not to the storm, but the winds that soothed her to come with.
She drifted, floating and swinging in the air.
Gracefully she came down,
amazed by nature itself.
She thought her purpose was done,
and I found goodness in her majestic landing.
I picked her up, smiled and promised her safety.
’til this day safe she remains.
The fall of 2012.
Leaf that made me smile
