Leaves flutter down in intemittent showers, touching ground

Leaves flutter down in intermittent showers, touching ground with a sound like pattering rain, so even with a clear blue sky overhead I check to make sure it’s not actually raining again. We’ve had some good rains lately. The western end of the Blue Wall has seen more than 112 inches of rain this year. The added weight of soaking November rainwater brings leaves down and softens them underfoot. What a gracious cycle: tree using earth and rain to make spring leaves, and summer leaves combining sunshine and rain to feed tree, before letting go, without fail, every year, no challenges, no lawsuits, no drama, returning precious nutrients to earth with no big fanfare, no need for special recognition. Be the tree. And Happy Thanksgiving! ~K
