Ivan Turgenev, Fathers and Sons

“Only with a leaf
can I talk of the forest,”
Visar Zhiti, The Condemned Apple: Selected Poetry

Louise Glück
“Living things don't all require
light in the same degree. Some of us
make our own light: a silver leaf
like a path no one can use, a shallow
lake of silver in the darkness under the great maples.

But you know this already.
You and the others who think
you live for truth and, by extension, love
all that is cold.”
Louise Glück, Poems 1962-2012

Daniel J. Rice

Alexander Pushkin
“I've lived to see my longings die"

I've lived to se my longings die:
My dreams and I have grown apart;
Now only sorrow haunts my eye,
The wages of a bitter heart.

Beneath the storms of hostile fate,
My flowery wreath has faded fast;
I live alone and sadly wait
To see when death will come at last.

Just so, when the winds in winter moan
And snow descends in frigid flakes,
Upon a naked branch, alone,
The final leaf of summer shakes!”
Alexander Pushkin

Israelmore Ayivor
“Every tree in the forest has a story to tell. Some of them were burnt but they endured the fire and got revived; some of them were cut, their barks injured, some people pick up their leaves to make medicines for their sicknesses, birds used their leaves to make their nests, etc. Upon all these, the tree is still tree!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Shaping the dream

Anne Bishop
He stopped pacing and looked at her as if she'd just asked him to count every leaf on every tree in the Old Place. "Because... you're you.”

Jesikah Sundin
“Feelings are real. They often become one’s reality. But they are not always based on truth.”
Jesikah Sundin, Elements


Every oak will lose a leaf to the wind.
Every star-thistle has a thorn.
Every flower has a blemish.
Every wave washes back upon itself.
Every ocean embraces a storm.
Every raindrop falls with precision.
Every slithering snail leaves its silver trail.
Every butterfly flies until its wings are torn.
Every tree-frog is obligated to sing.
Every sound has an echo in the canyon.
Every pine drops its needles to the forest floor.
Creation's whispered breath at dusk comes
with a frost and leaves within dawn's faint mist,
for all of existence remains perfect, adorned,
with a dead sparrow on the ground.

(Poem titled : 'Perfection' by R.H.Peat)”
R.H. Peat

Jesikah Sundin
“As the leaves randomly fell, she contemplated how they sacrificially gave up their essence to sustain new life. Or was it the tree’s sacrifice? Each leaf was a part of Gaia’s play. Their final act: to decompose so a new level of soil could be made, an earthen writing tablet for the next layer of history to be recorded. One generation became the groundwork for the next. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Nothing was exempt, not even the leaves.”
Jesikah Sundin, Legacy

Jesikah Sundin
“Secrets upon secrets were weaving into a strange and mysterious fabric that would ultimately clothe his future.”
Jesikah Sundin, Legacy

“The autumn leaf falls faster than the trees grow faster. (La feuille d'automne descend plus vite - Que les arbres ne grandissent plus vite.)”
Charles de Leusse

Andrew McMillan
“please, love, leave,
like leaf from tree;
taking beauty,
leaving seed”
Andrew McMillan

Jesikah Sundin
“Their leafy whispers delighted her, and she promised her confidentiality by gently touching the trunks of both trees. They had held her secrets close to their hearts, she could do no less.”
Jesikah Sundin, Legacy

Gemma Malley
“I am just a leaf. Just a leaf falling from the tree so that a new bud may grow.”
Gemma Malley, The Legacy

Jesikah Sundin
“Multi-colored lights flashed and glared on the wet road and cast eerie reflections, reminiscent of artistic surrealism. Fillion imagined that his distress and anger swirled and moved with the refracted lights, creating an urban masterpiece of demented fury.”
Jesikah Sundin, Legacy

Israelmore Ayivor
“Your initiatives should be purposeful. Never climb a tree with the purpose of plucking a fruit, only to come down with a leaf.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Shaping the dream

Jesikah Sundin
“Leaf felt buried beneath the remains of their prior life, the ashes coating every part of who he thought he was in this community.”
Jesikah Sundin, Legacy

Colin Meloy
“This was all in the making, a long time ago. You had as much control over these events as a leaf does in the time of its falling.”
Colin Meloy

Jesikah Sundin
“The scenic route was a paved graveyard of dreams, but Fillion hoped his would rise from the ashes, marking the moment when he would finally own his life.”
Jesikah Sundin, Legacy

Celia McMahon
“That day a dead leaf makes it way into my cell and I pick up, close my fist over it and let the broken pieces fall to the ground. There is no wind to blow it away so I let the fragments surround me like an homage to it's once beautiful life. Here I am with the remnants of the dead and here I sit waiting to crumble into pieces.”
Celia McMahon, Skye

Jesikah Sundin

“In the fall of leaves,
In the hustle of breeze,
In the curve of streams,
I foresee,
Nature keeps more concealed,
Than it lets us peep!”
Jasleen Kaur Gumber
