So why is it that every year leaves do what most people can't
with such ease,
in such a spectacular way?
I just hope the next time change affects my life,
I'll face the upcoming winter
with the same dignity as a leaf
and dressed in fabulous new clothes.
So when I look at my reflection, my heart heavy with worry,
I'll remember how easy leaves make it all seem,
May you enjoy these remaining autumn weeks watching leaves blanket the ground with color and grace.
