Decaying Leaves

All it takes is a little rain and then, like a bowl of cereal, the autumn leaves go from crispy to sodden. Nature takes over, adding darker, earthier colors to the mix. To me, this has its own charms. It still looks like the aftermath of a confetti-strewn party, but now I see the future, as the leaves begin their transformation into good loamy earth. Those bright yellows will return some future autumn, a new generation of leaves nourished by their elders.
