Leaf Shadow

While wandering out and about after another snow dump, I came across this dangling maple leaf hanging on for dear life with the help of a friendly spider web.  It made me pause to think of the beautiful autumn that gave in to old man winter, which is providing yet more beauty for those of us who love to partake in the conversations out of doors with the universe.  

Now this snowy oak leaf, is quite strong in her own right, for as the torrential rains and high winds that always come through just when the autumnal colors have met their glorious peak, she held steadfast for the duration of her glory on the mighty oak branch...yes, a true cling-on, because we have had some nasty ice and snow here in the northeast. She is in tune with her high self!

And she has quite the vantage point from where she clings.  She knows where all the acorns are stashed, too.  The chipmunks and squirrels take no notice of her as she watches them skitter here and there making tracks in the snow as they keep busy with their winter meanderings.

Old man winter is here for now...we must be grateful for this day regardless of the weather.  It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood!  Tune in...the universe is having a convo with all of us!  We are connected...and it's simply divine!!!
