The Last Leaves

December 21, 2015

The last leaves dance their final dance
against the grey winter sky
It will be Xmas in few days
and the trees in the garden will soon
stand bare
in the December light

Yet
in the corner
tacked behind the compost bin
the first tender cherry blossoms
are blooming
opening their hearts to the world

Trusting
that deep down
in the darkest days of winter
all is well
all is well
all is well…
