Thanks to Razmataz’s Red Challenge for the inspiration of my post!
Looking up into the maple tree, I’m struck by these two leaves, side by side.
One green ~ hanging on to summer hues.
One red ~ proud to have changed to autumn’s splendor.
Which are you?
Hanging on to yesterday’s hues or…
Reaching for tomorrow’s changes?
We’ll smell smoke then,
and feel an unexpected sharpness,
a thrill of nervousness,
a sense of sadness and departure.”
