The Leafs Lament by Andrew Fusek Peters.

Said the leaf to the sky,
I would learn how to fly,
But I’m shaking like a leaf do I dare?

Said the sky to the leaf,
It’s a matter of belief
Just jump into my blanket of air!

Then the sky sang,
Then the leaf sprang,
And the trees were empty and bare.

Illustration in Black acrylic painted with card and worked in photoshop. Image inspired by seeing a tree when walking along Englands Coastal path in Dorset. It was incredibly windswept and sheep were sheltering under it from the strong winds blowing in from the sea.
