Leaves Are Gone

(Lulu, MI) Its empty branches reach upward, as if in supplication to the forces that caused the changing of the season. No longer able to provide shade or windbreak, this tree stands in stark isolation against the backdrop of a fall afternoon in southern Michigan.

It will continue its lonely vigil for many more months through driving snow and moonlit winter nights on this stretch of prairie, forlorn and yet still defiant of the weather it must endure.
