leaves and trees

autumn leaves
some time for a caregiver
to rest in good care

Years ago, when I was recovering from an illness, I was sitting by a window in Sheboygan.

The tall weathered evergreens across the road spoke to me.  A “haiku moment.”

The hard years showed, yet the trees had continued to grow.

weathered trees
strong and beautiful
my time of healing
