One day while crossing the road of a local market, I came across this broken twig from a nearby tree. My eyes instantly fell on it and I was intrigued by the sheer beauty of its symmetry, each of the six leaves half dried and half green lay lifeless on the road.
Was it a picture of the onset of autumn, when the leaves or twigs, like many others, are destined to drop from its branch one day or was it the twig’s tough luck that a pair of quarreling crows on the branch forced it to part ways from its companions, still flourishing and lush green up there?
I guess the latter was true. Its half green and half dried state signified its once lush green appearance and how its leaves were gradually drying out at the edges. The day was approaching when it would completely dry out and crumble into pieces to become a part of mother earth, which had once nourished it to life.
So much said, at that hour I only had my mobile phone handy. And since I never miss a chance to capture Mother Nature’s sheer beauty, I captured this one in my phone and my memory.
