It began innocently enough.
A cup of tea, watching a cooking show,
cutting six loaves of bread into cubes
for Thanksgiving's turkey stuffing,
when a sudden draft
sent a Japanese maple leaf
sailing through the air,
landing on my cup of tea!
The "Before" Picture:
I had picked up the leaf a couple of days ago
on my way to the grocery store,
and given it a place of honor
on my laptop
Photographed last night
