Once in a while you find one that refuses to give in
refuses to let go, doesn’t even think about quitting
no matter how cold, or how much pain, they keep going
living in the green, waiting for their brothers and sisters
to catch up, patiently waiting out the winter,
hopeful, speckled with blue. We can learn a lot
from a leaf.
