"...This leaf shall not wither...Psalms 1: 3"

A perfect maple leaf I found
And picked it off the ground
Tones were vibrant~ orange- red.
Thinking here's one not dead!
Later truth hit me like a rocket....
When pulling it from my pocket;
This time not wearing a glove!
The leaf I thought was genuine
So beautifully designed to love
Felt artificial against my skin
Learned it wasn't real.... but fake
Though easily to mistake!!!!

This really did happen today...Of all the dead leaves on the grass by the library, my eyes were drawn to this one leaf that stood out with color....Later when I got in the car I took my gloves off to shoot a picture of it ...I found then it was a fake leaf....Not sure how it got on the library grounds among all the dead dried leaves and I should be the one to find it but makes an interesting story anyway:)

    Thank you for the comments....Yes, it gave me a smile..After I went inside the library that is out of town from the library we normally go to where we live for returning some CD's and also picked up what was requested I thought the leaf would be withered from carrying in my pocket when I found it on the grounds earlier...I pulled it out of my pocket to show my husband in the car and he thought it was a real leaf too...He was as surprised as I was to learn it was artificial.
