On the surface, it's sad. You wonder if the leaves will ever return, or if you're looking at the lifeless remnants of something that once was and likely will never be again. Yes, it's "just" some wild-growth brush, and we don't grieve over lost plant life in the same way we mourn an individual or even a pet. But a stripped-bare scene like this still gives me pause. Maybe we all need more excuses to pause and think. Maybe there's a lesson in the stripped-bare beauty.
