Rosualdo is just an ordinary person with an extraordinary God, who wants to spread God’s words and love through writing articles and poems.


Falling leaves depicts lessons in life that needs to ponder and contemplate. It illustrate the lesson of separation, loss of vitality, decay, shortness of life, and death. Life is like a leaf, there is a time for a fall.

Who can live and not see death,
or who can escape the power of the grave? (Psalms 89:48 NIV)

The leaves that fall

shows the lesson of impending and unavoidable death

Where the essence of life cease to live and breathe

and the end will surely happen and will never be late

The leaves that fall

exhibits the lesson of the absence of strength and power

Where the key nutrition end and stop to empower

and the vital nourishment and sustenance disappear

The leaves that fall

demonstrates the lesson of parting and separation

Where there is no longer a bond of a strong connection

and the remaining element is the unfortunate disconnection

The leaves that fall

illustrates the lesson that life is short and temporary

Where the existence last only to its designed actuality

and the breath rest to the bedroom of its validity

The leaves that fall

depicts the lesson of inevitable decay and deterioration

Where the charm and beauty move to the realm of erosion

and the magnificence and splendor dive into attrition

The leaves that fall

expresses the lesson to live and abide in God Almighty

Where the triumph over death and separation is a reality

and decay will be swallowed by the vigorous vitality
