Once Upon A Leaf

I am in awe of leaves. They are perfect for abstract photography. I’m usually thinking ‘leaf planet’ when I photograph them. Hence, the poem, ‘Once Upon a Leaf’.
How curious can I possibly be?  
To envision a day upon a leaf.
A Tom Thumb I would need to be!
To hop and skip upon a frond -
Yes! It is beyond belief!
A queen for a day in the city of green!
I would explore the leaves graceful patterns.  
Run a hand over their perfect veins.
A drink of water I would take
From glistening beads of rain.
Within a sheaf of leaf,  
I would conceal myself.
Here, I will have the freedom
To survey tiny armoured beasts,
Devouring their juicy feasts.
I’d stroke the silky wing of a butterfly.
Count the spots on a ladybird.
Gaze into the turquoise eyes of a dragonfly,
And catch a swift ride on a lizard.
In the center of an elephant ear
Is where I will take my rest.
With my hands beneath my head.
I will dream away the rest of the day,
In this most secret place on earth.

A few of the smaller creatures I have encountered in my garden. Simply fascinating!
The light effects on the leaves creates amazing patterns.
