We all do fade as a leaf...Isaiah 64: 6


A leaf once held beauty
Glowing in the sun;
Showing life was fun
Hanging from a tree.

Its fate was to die
While still on the tree
Ripping holes
For new eyes
That can see
God in the sky.

What did not erase
As the lines
Crept on its face...
This faded old leaf
Left us no grief,
But a smile behind...

Poetry by me AJP

This leaf stood out to me as I went for my walk in the woods, for the way
it was still clinging on the tree even after it died and the unusual holes
that formed eyes, nose and a mouth that turned up in in a smile.
