A maple leaf over icy snow
Didn't crumple in cold weather
While frozen leaves below
Fell apart to fade and wither!

I thought it was interesting to compare how some leaves fade less quickly keeping their color and form while others wither away. At first I was going to just photograph the maple leaf; however the dried leaves underneath were frozen to the icy snow...I am glad I kept it as nature intended.
