Nature Teacher: Illusory Wrinkles

The autumn dogwood

teaches

wrinkles are completely natural

in the maturation of life.

Leaves soft and supple in springtime

now wither and crease with age

each wrinkle a scepter of reverence and wisdom.

Red berries beneath wrinkled Dogwood leaves

If leaves do not show age

are they virtual brush strokes?

Look deeply

the obscured beauty is still there.

Berries shine so brightly

in autumn.
