Lively leaves

I wish you could be here in my leaf. It is so cool. Bright light and rainbow colors fill the space. I float in the cytoplasm and watch with wonder. Organelles drift by and molecules race to their destinations.

The best thing is that we are all working for one goal. Survival. We cheer when we turn orange and dry out. When we float down to the ground everyone goes nuts.

Being a leaf is a good thing to be.

My turn

It’s cold. My body is turning reddish orange. I’m pretty dried up and my veins are sticking out. I’m almost ready. The wind is blowing me back and forth and I can feel the abcission layer weakening. There it goes.

What a view. I’m floating on currents of air. I see my buddies coming down also. I am headed for a beautiful green patch. I make a perfect soft landing.

What a great ride.
