Another fall is giving way to winter.
Many of the leaves quit their jobs
Dropping to the ground to remain unemployed
Then that is not entirely true
They just switched jobs
Done with their work in the photosynthesis and cellular respiration department.
Done with the second career of entertaining us
With their spectacular array of colors
When the trees informed them, their services would no longer be needed
Leafs embarked on a third labor.
While still slightly entertaining and colorful on the forest floor
They take on the job of being mulch compost
Somewhat of a on the job training program for soil.
