Falling leaves

Today I watched as the leaves danced on the wind that blew them flying through the air.

Gosh! It was so beautiful to watch. Some of them brushed against my skin gently placing a kiss upon the softness of my face
Some gently floated down like angels to lay themselves to rest upon the rust and golden ground.

Imagine yourselves to be like a tree, a tree in autumn, standing firm ... bending your boughs occasionally to ever which way the wind may blow.

Your tiny buds unfold slowly in the spring.
You gently grow to the sounds of the birds
Then in summer you are fully grown all leaves green and bright
The sun embracing you all day the moon enchanting you in the night
And it is again the autumn. The Fall
You shed your coat
And smile. Time to rest and renew.

Is this what life is. A cycle. :o)
Hugs for all that may visit here today.

thats a beautiful comparison. some trees just bend during storms but dun break. And some other fragile trees break.
