beauty of autumn

October 23, 2011

the endless veins on the surface
shining
caressing the skin
the leaf is visible and felt
through the veins.

where are your veins that feed you
that give you the life
that bear your life?
feel them and see.
and caress with care.

sometimes they are dry
and clogged
cold
wind
and rain trap them, stop them and kill them
veins are dry.
don’t ever despair
don’t ever give up
just look up
look up at the tree and see
how it sheds the leaves with lifeless veins
in vain is despair
in the presence of a tree that knows how to live, to go on
in new veins it repairs
itself
and you if you see.
