A Golden Leaf – God’s Gift to Me

A Golden Leaf

A golden leaf
   flecked with brown
      curved, hard stem.

Flame-shaped
   with jagged edges.

Central, sienna vein
   climbing to the tip. 

Twin veins
   spaced evenly
      stretching to
         jagged points.

Perfect in appearance
   except for one small hole
      on lower left lobe.

Perfect, yet flawed
   like me
       –  beautiful.

Created by God,
   my Abba.

A treasure
   dropped
      into my lap.

God’s gift to me,
       A golden leaf.
