wow! all growing on the same stem. the oxymorons of life never seize to amaze me. what comes to mind is God's description of Himself... I am the resurrection and the Life but He needed to know death in order to be that for us.

and you say that you don't write poetry...

I can see your winter fingertips in the first phrase.
And that leaf is gorgeous. I picked up a pretty leaf the other day and thought of you and Grandma.
