Shadowbrook Leaves

Digital Photograph


I found these leaves on a friend's lawn in Vermont, and loved both the contrast in colors and the way the larger leaves seem to cradle the smaller ones.


It seems to me a classic representation of the journey from separation through wounding into wholeness. Each leaf has become separated from the root and branch that feeds it, and is slowly dissolving back into the earth from which it came—and becoming "hole-ier" in the process.
