Have You Tried?

A Little Leaf Music

Take a walk to look for trees (not evergreens) that still have dead and dried leaves clinging to them. Stand under them with your eyes closed and listen for the rustle of ‘leaf music’ as even the slightest breeze goes by. If you can reach one of these leaves, pluck it and feel it…doesn’t it feel like paper? Will the rest of them ever fall? Check on them as winter goes on.
