The tree or the leaf?

This picture was only taken a few weeks ago-
a Maple fully dressed in colors of the rainbow.

Full, yet dying-
branches bare as they await the frosty evening chill.
Empty.
It makes me wonder,
at what point does the tree shed it's weight?
or is it the leaf that lets go?
A moment in time and a piece of the process. 
Change. Transition. Cycles. 


A gentle dance between give and take-
all depending on how the wind decides to shake.
