The thing that is hid, bringeth he forth to light. Job 28: 11

LOOK at me!
Says a gold leaf,
Caught in a tree.
"I am the only one
Shining in the sun...
My life is brief...
But I bring you cheer
While I am still here."
Poetry by me, AJP

Our fall leaves and colors are leaving us rapidly...but this gold leaf really caught my attention in the woods today. It was hanging there in the light waiting to be noticed.

    Beautiful light and color. It seems to be hanging on to summer with all it's strength.

    Thank you all for your comments...We get spoiled every fall to see the beautiful leaves and
    then after a few wind storms they are gone...But sometimes just one leaf stands out such
    as this one did...A few days ago I saw a colorful vibrant leaf drift by me as my husband and
    I were doing our power walk ... The healthy leaf landed beside a dead leaf further up the path.. it was almost like a message from my late mother who died in October last year giving her approval for us to keep up the good work with our walking ...I even thought of her when I saw this golden leaf shining in the sun.
