leaf meditations, part one

maple leaf
falling down
showing front
showing back

- Ryokan

been spending some time going through images from my recent trip to colorado, trying to decide what to do with some of my foliage images, and the other night came across some passages about seeing in a steve hagen book i've been reading. much to my delight, he used watching falling leaves as an example of just seeing. when we see reality, he says, we are completely beyond the realm of words and concepts. can just watching leaves fall do that? i'm for it.
