Through the microscope I saw the death of a leaf as a metaphor for the forest.
In this leaf I could see
The searing flames of a bush fire,
The decay and recycling of its flesh and bones,
The crystallization of time
A fossil
The past and the future
The story of the forest
In the death of a leaf . . .
