The Ginkgo Tree Votes

The Ginkgo Tree is considered "the bearer of hope"
Today I walked to the polls and cast my vote. Done. Did you cast yours? On my way home from voting, I was surprised with a beautiful golden ginkgo leaf. Beautiful and bright, the oyster shaped leaf reminded me of life and all of it's seasons. Even in our darkest hour, there is always light - 

autumn wind -
a ginkgo leaf
brightens all things
