The last few leaves still clinging on,tightly won't let go.  Refusing to surrender,fighting with the snow.  Most eventually release, guided by wind more than gravity.  One by one.  Lonely.  Those who stayed endured -the roughest part of life.  Winter battle won.  Will too, be pushed on, by the new growth below.  Who won?  Early on almost all went with the crowd.  Avoiding the harshest time of the year.  Snuggled together with kin.  Nestled under; however surrounded by darkness, helplessly feeling fear.  Persistance allows -at least 90 rises of the sun.  Silent witness of new life.  Feeling it from somewhere deep within, before gently letting go,  Understanding satisfaction.
