Like This Leaf

Before the flesh was put on
I was a line drawing
in the mind of my Creator.

You could see right through me
like this leaf.

Now the flesh recedes and leaves
veins, tendons, and bones
standing above skin.

Obscuring tissues dissolve
and I become transparent again
like this leaf.

Will I remember the tree from which I fell
like this leaf?
