Leaf Skeleton in acrylic, AVR 2013
The forest litter, layer after layer,
leaves fall, year after year;
for the earthworms, and the fungi
and rain from heaven high.
Imprints of time, imprints of life,
footprints of passersby;
but neither the past nor future,
shall any living thing defy.
life goes on, and on, ad infinitum
to hereafter unknown.
