For an All New Green Cover

img_20170301_080249666

Green leaves gradually turn yellow…

brown, prior to the fall, 

in order to make way for

renewal and regeneration of leaves.

Once the old leaves are shed,

the branches go bare…lonely,

and very soon, soundlessly tiptoe,

the new ones, sprouting up.

Lovely nascent green shoots, start showing, 

growing into a fresh,

all new green cover 

to go for the next year.
