Autumn Grace

I was looking out my office window here on campus this morning, and I saw a maple leaf falling, like the one in the photo here, and I could see a student walking toward it, and the student noticed it and reached out and caught it, ever so gently, not breaking her stride in the slightest, and she smiled and gazed upon the leaf, as if to notice that that was the most beautiful, serendipitous of moments, a moment she will keep with her all day, the leaf a treasure to remember it by.

Lovely.
