Temporary foliage

All photos by Wells Baum

Constant and changing, the Fall comes around and whips durable trees into seasonal characters, reminding us that everything is temporary.

The form is ephemeral, the roots are permanent. The colorful autumn foliage tree jettisons its leaves, falling without regret.

The ‘e’ in leaf stands for effortless; its intuition accepts the will of the wind and the serenity of landing on terra firma. Those that remain appear vivid under the flash of light. The season’s cycle into GIF loops.

‘When I fall let me fall without regret like a leaf.’

When I rise up
let me rise up joyful
like a bird.

When I fall
let me fall without regret
like a leaf.

— Wendell Berry, The Mad Farmer Poems
