Loose Change

I turned over a new leaf
Which was attached to a branch
Linked to a trunk
Rooted in the ground
The cold dark earth
The warm light earth
Where used to reside the roots
Linked to a trunk
Attached to a branch
That held a leaf
Which turned me under

      Thanks! I tend to have circular thoughts because I’m a well-rounded person. 😛 Unfortunately I don’t have the time to fully explore your link right now, but I will 🙂
