Secret Life of Leaves

Look closely to find the secret life of leaves, the colours they turn in the rain, their subtle shape differences, the infinite colours of green, the tender undersides revealed, the tracing of their veins, the arc of shapes they make amongst the branches and other leaves around them, they way they stand out from their branch. Or perhaps they discreetly fold or flutter or hang in rows like a prayer flags.

Small details in nature arrest my attention and still my thoughts and it is in this way that I most easily enter a mindful state, a meditation of peace.
