Swimming, swimming in a hundred rivers, the tiny green leaf lets faith carry it.
The currents throw her around. She is helpless, hopeless but she holds herself against all odds. Water that deep, clear as crystal, calling her – she knew it was a siren’s call, yet she let herself fall.
Mother Tree screamed for help, but it was too late.
Dirtier water now falls lazily into that dark, big mouth of certain doom – a death sentence.
The little green leaf should have known better than to fall in love with a river.
