Leaf Lenses

Sunlight slicing through ten thousand leaf lenses
Splatters vivid colors across the browns and grays of earth, stone, and bark.

A tender maple leaf whispers, “Enter this cathedral we’ve prepared for you.

Sit in silence.

Touch and breathe.

Rise and walk this new creation.” IMG_0729r IMG_0699rr
