GARDEN 64 – DEAD LEAF, SUNSTRUCK
August 29, 2015 9 Comments
Death in a garden, made bright by the rising of our star. A last remnant, holding on, still beautiful, defying Earth’s incessant pull.
And I killed it. Why? Well, that’s a sharp thorn on the stem just below the leaf – this a the branch of a bramble. And were I not to keep these barbed bushes in check, our garden would soon be overwhelmed and impenetrable, to us at least.
And do we – “us” – merit this slaughter, or should we just let Nature takes it course? This is a question that I sometimes wonder about.
