Dear Martha, What a beautiful poem and photo.
Too often I focus on the fallen leaves
Scattered on my weed covered bit of earth.
Signs of death and decay?
Perhaps, and yet . . .
A change of focus,
And new buds and blossoms appear . . .
Or perhaps they lay in wait all along.
Beyond the shadows shines the blazing sun!
