Daily Prompt: Leaves, Raindrops, Friends

in response to today’s daily prompt

The Last Leaf

refreshed memories

It was thirteen years ago.  There was a slight drizzle late in the afternoon, and I let myself get wet in the rain.


I remembered that I also did this some years back, when everything seemed so much different, sure there was always life’s constant decisions to make and they were as complicated as ever, but at the same time life’s simple pleasures abound. During the rain I caught a bamboo leaf just before it hit the ground, thinking that I have halted its descent back to the earth from which it came from.  Later I gave that leaf to a very special person and told her how I got hold of it. She told me she kept it. I don’t know if she has the leaf now years after, but to this day she still remains special.

Leaves, raindrops, friends. Rainy afternoons always seem to bring back these memories..
