A cottonwood leaf in Maricopa County, Arizona announces autumn’s arrival.

First quest of autumn—
I try to read messages
written in the leaves.

  1. The leaves here are pretty much saying “we’re thirsty.” The little pine tree in front of my house died. This drought has been obnoxious.
    Your poem is beautiful.

  2. A noble endeavor this is, dear MMT. Please, let us know what you discover!

  3. Do American leaves have messages in English and Dutch leaves in Dutch???

      Well, some Americans speak Spanish and some speak Japanese , while others speak Tagalog or German, so… LOL

  6. I just love the name of a cottonwood tree. I have never seen one. Messages on leaves, and those whispers carried by the wind, and other ways of nature, are special. Listen closely.
