Day 15: Leaves

As with yesterday's prompt, the season begs for a poem about leaves. My 2-year-old son loves stomping through crunchy ones, of course. Once, a couple of years ago, I found a pink €50 note camouflaged in a pile of autumn leaves. Who doesn't love watching a leaf fall from the sky at this time of the year? And who doesn't feel slightly pained at the look of a pile of them squelched into mulch underfoot as the season wears on? 

You could also write about sticky springtime leaves just beginning to bud, or glorious lushly green summer leaves at the peak of their existence.

But what struck me about this prompt is, again, the possibility for multiple meaning. "Leaves", of course, is also a present indicative verb. You might want to weave these two concepts together, or just stick with one. Either way, we look forward to seeing the results.
