ode


oh, little leaf.
did you know that this brilliance,
hues so glorious now
were there,
part of you
all along?

beauty
veiled by summer's
season of productivity
obscured then
by common green
even
from watchful eyes
like mine.

new season brings
change
subtle,
and yet almost overnight
alteration
this transformation
birthed
a second time
into 
awed splendor
unique from
all the rest.

a radiance,
albeit fleeting.

shine on.
