Threads Of Gold

Fragile dry leaf

fallen to the ground

useless?

unique cultural art

veins of leaf

intricately embroidered in gold

highly skilled craft.

~

The fallen leaf

left to disintegrate?

Master craftsman

transforms it

into

valuable piece of art

beautifully adorned

in gold threads.

~

A dry leaf

left to rot?

or a beautiful

creation begins?
