Leaves are not that unlike man.
Man reaches his fullest in his autumn just before he bows from this life and takes passage to another….
Leaves start as a mere bud on a tree. Man starts a mere seed in a womb.
Man and leaves both breathe. Man through lungs inhaling oxygen and exhaling carbon (dioxide), leaves through diffusion inhaling carbon (dioxide) and exhaling oxygen.
Both grow, one from small wrinkled and green, the other from small wrinkled and pink!
Both have veins throughout that support and feed.
Both grow by the nurturance of and connection to an organic source, one the tree and the other the family tree.
Leaves grow best when exposed to the SUN, constantly stretching upward toward its’ warming growing properties.
Man grows best when exposed to the SON, stretching upward constantly searching for the healing growing properties of the light of the world.
Autumn leaves are not that unlike man.
Both have weathered changes the seasons bring for optimal stamina.
This allows leaves in their autumn to show high caliber color.
This allows man in his autumn to show high caliber character.
