the dance of leaves

After drying, my leaves leave a sweet smell in the backyard shed. I gently pull them from the stems, and fill my square glass jar with them.This time a French classic pairing of lemon verbena and peppermint.I try to keep them whole, so that when I drop them in my tea glass, they brighten  and dance with each other.It is the beauty of nature, from start to finnish.and then they give their aroma to the water, a clear sunny broth that will soothe.
