Turbulence – an abstract of a winter leaf

I found this leaf on the coldest day of the winter, walking back home with my coat pulled as tight as possible against the wind. The last few leaves from autumn were being blown about my driveway, when this one caught my eye. This leaf was twisted up into itself, as if huddling to keep warm. The pattern of the twisting leaves seemed to echo the movement of the wind that had been blowing this leaf around for months.
