The Pin Oak Leaf

22 Dec 14

A single tan pin oak leaf hangs on the tree. It twists and turns in the sun, shivers in the chilly breeze, the rain, and has weathered two heavy snow storms.

Mourning doves, blue jays, finches and gray squirrels flit past, keep it company nearby, a part of yet distant, as disengaged as most human society.
