autumnal dawn

#writealm october 28 prompt: autumnal dawn

my most recent trip down south to charlottesville yielded the views i have been longing for all season. during most of the drive i simply took it all in from the driver's seat. sometimes, though, i was compelled to pull off the road and soak it all in.

this fancy festooning makes me so very, very happy and curiously introspective. the colors, the vibrancy, the shapes, the textures, each leaf unabashedly displaying a spectacular last hurrah before taking its proud, final leap away from the branch that nurtured it from birth.

i learn a lot from a leaf.
