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

  1. Love the shape of gingko leaf. It has a 'gentle and soothing' look to it.

  2. ginko nuts are used for desserts, it's very nice :)

  3. Megan,
    I've sent a email to you, I wonder if you've seen it.

  4. Have yet seen them dried and this is my first time! Hope you're well, Meg. ((hugs))
    Blessings, Kristy

  5. This ginko leaf is a beautiful tribute Fall. I also like the haiku.

  6. Very nice. I wish I went out to vote, just turned 19, but I have yet to have my license and voter registration sent. Boo....
