“Autumn Leaves”

Each year, after the frost, I move some large indoor trees outside to summer.  Then, before the autumn temperatures plummet, they return inside again.  And each year, they drop their leaves in protest……..

All living things long to be outside….breathing the air, feeling the sun, not through a window, but through the dappled shadows from clouds overhead.

So, each year, my living things protest……and I sweep, and sweep, and sweep.  Finally, they resign themselves, like angry children, that this is the way it must be.

And they wait until the spring comes for their respite from imprisonment that keeps them safe, but trapped…….

……….like a lot of living things these days, wandering safe enclosures in zoos and wildlife sanctuaries…….

All living beings cry to be free………..

Perhaps plants drop their leaves to weep……
