A growing leaf, green in color, has fallen prematurely. It has separated from the tree of life and landed in a pool of water, of many tears. It is a dark moment. A human tear lingers on the freshly fallen leaf…before it turns brown.
On a sea of grief and pain
The leaf cradles a teardrop.
Offers refuge. Embodies hope.
Just as winter awakens spring,
Our deepest sorrow harbors the seed of hope renewed.
