What if i were a leaf? The fullness of my being lifted by the breath of earth. Spiraling, dancing with her breath. Completely guided by her breath.
What if i were a leaf? part of a great tree, a tree that is part of a great forest, a forest that is part of a world, a world that is part of a universe. If i were just a leaf i would be infinite.
What if i were a leaf? Green, red, orange, yellow, brown...people would look at my color as beauty.
What if i were a leaf? falling into a pile, sycamore, maple, white birch, would it matter that we are from different trees, do we see different leaves, or just a pile?
What if i were a leaf? So trusting, able to let go into the breath of the earth, knowing that i would be set free in my trust, knowing that although it is the winter of my life, springtime is just a time away...
What if i were a leaf?
