its simple splendour

dying is beautiful...in a leaf...Gorgeous colours- delicious! I feel the need to splash some colour around with paints-

linda sue this one landed on a pile of old leaves from last year tucked in a corner that i reserve for the fairies and the bunnies. i was going to mention your post with a similarly beautiful leaf but i thought i'd let this little leaf stand on its own!!! i think that people can be like this when they get older. more colourful in a subtle sort of way. steven

It was like the leaf was saying "Pssst, hey you. Yes, you up there. Look down here. See me?"

Friko said...

Oh but it will.
And isn't it a good thing?
Without the transience of beauty would we see it and appreciate it?
