As I looked closely at your majestic, glossy leaf, I noticed the network of lines running all through. Suddenly I realized that at the edge, the veins did not go all the way to the rim of the leaf by turned and rejoined the others. This made me think of our highway system.
The lousy highways go here, there, and everywhere uniting our world. These highways hold the earth together much as the veins traverse and hold the leaf. At the edge of the world, they turn inward again and start the journey of uniting our world all over again.
