The stripped and shapely
Maple grieves
The ghosts of her
Departed leaves.

The stanza fits this perfectly! One of the things I've noticed so far in this side challenge is the brilliant "flow" of things a LB can give. This is a good example.

You found the sweet spot for sure and put it to good use. B&W is great, too.

One thing I'm noticing is that the Lensbaby can really capture some great moody atmospheric pictures. Like this one.

Great title and lovely photo. I like how it appears that the tree's fingers are pulling the on the horizon in despair.
