waiting for me

DSC00191This leaf, propped up like it is here on its stem and all by itself, was waiting for me when I opened the front door yesterday morning. Do you think it thought I wasn’t noticing?

I moved it for a moment over by the pumpkinDSC00189

Then I brought it inside where I showed it to everyone.

    • Hi Linda, you’re right. I had two thoughts when I saw that little leaf: one, that it had come to tell me something, and two: that it was making a gift of itself.

      So glad you liked the poem.
