This leaf meant a lot to the tree

All the leaves had fallen but this last one didn’t want to leave the tree. Actually, it wasn’t just the leaf, the tree was even more serious not to let the leaf back to the mother ground.

Every year in this season mother ground calls the leaves to come back to her hug to be able to cover the trees with fresh and young leaves in new year but this time was different for these 2 friends, they had a lot of memories and history together, playing with wind and making funny sounds with and laugh, handshaking for people, talking a lot with birds and so on, this leaf meant a lot to the tree…

The leaf itself but was persuaded to fall down into the ground’s hug maybe she could help her go back again to the tree as a young leaf in the new year but the tree didn’t leave her hand, this leaf meant a lot to the tree…

Meanwhile, Mr wind (who most of the time was in hurry) carelessly passed through the tree and the leaf got stuck to him and suddenly her hand was separated of the tree…

The leaf fell into a moving river and the last thing remained for the tree was a deep eye contact with his dear gone leaf, the last look…

Sometimes the best way to keep your valueable stuff is letting them go …
