    Congratulations! What a beautiful photo and the poem is equally wonderful. I remember having a leaf such as this tucked into a book for many years, and I really cherished it.

    Thanks to all who voted for this, and especially Adirondack Gal who deserves a lot of kudos for her first place finish in the Open Category.

This is a special leaf for me. It's at least 10 years old and since then has been affixed to a very poignant poem written by my late sister and displayed in a shadow box. I thought the leaf reflected the thoughts of the poem.

Indulge me for a moment and read the first few lines of her poem, and thanks again for the votes.

LUXURIES

When I want all the whisper and richness of lace
To nestle my hair and to shadow my face,
I can run to the leaves
For textures and weaves,
For green filigrees
From the looms of the trees.
Or I can climb down
and come back to town
Where there's row after row
Of laces on show---
Delicate, whispery, intricate lace.
I think the world is truly a wonderful place
If the trees grow leaves, and men fashion lace.......

    I like the detail of the veining against the blurred background of the trees

    This was my first idea, but I just couldn't find the right leaf! LOL! This is a wonderful image for the theme, and it is nicely captured!
