leaf book




All our words are

but crumbs

that fall down

from the feast

of the mind.


Kahlil Gibran

===========================

Umbrella Magnolia leaves,
part of a leaf book,
sent by a very dear
and close friend.

Amazing, they made it too,
all in one piece.


Thanks again
(you know who you are!)
