Autumn Moments

Had a moment today to ponder and study autumn.  I never really understood why leaves fall, so I investigated the process today.  Perhaps you were like me and believed that the wind pulled the leaves from the tree, but it is quite opposite.  Trees when they move from the process of needing nourishment, photosynthesis, in a sense, “fire the kitchen staff” as one wrote.  Trees have cells called, abscission cells which organize at the stem to, in a sense scissor or cut off the leave, so that it is free to fall and not drain or tax the tree during dormancy.  So that is my lay explanation of what I studied, but quite interesting, isn’t it?  In this contemplation and study, came these haiku.

The leaves are actually silhouettes of several autumn tree photos, I took the other day.  Another day of playing with Photoshop.

Perhaps today will be a day of shedding some unnecessaries in our lives that we may find greater rest.
