LOOKING AT LEAVES
I spent the morning
looking at leaves . . .
studying their structure,
their design, and purpose.
After all, they feed the plant,
collect the light, produce the flowers.
Leaves are the vascular system
the food and nourishment for growth.
Worth a close look.
As beautiful as the flowers and fruit
they help produce.
(Just wait till autumn,
when leaves put on their own show.)
