under glass

I don't keep cheese under this old cheese plate dome


no brie, cheddar or camembert


for now I keep this lacy leaf


but a seashell, bird nest or piece of coral would be pretty too

... and here's today's sky ...

fragile and honored that leaf devoid of it's life force, the skeleton memory of Fall. Exquisite.

I've run across lacy leaves before, but never one so intact. I just love how you've played up its rarity by showing it under glass.

I love leaf skeletons and they deserve a place of honor. They are absolutely works of art. I have a bunch of them in a glass jar. Hmmmmm, have you painted one yet? My daughter drew one in Jr. High.
