Ash leaf


is the ash remains of a birch leaf that got singed in this fire:

twenty or thirty miles out of town and blown to town, fallen down from the sky and deposited gently on a horsetail.

Amazing that this fragile ash-leaf survived in one piece, starting with getting burned without falling apart, to the entire journey in the air, and fall.

And, to practice my czech:
Vitr z lesnich pozaru tricet az padesat kilometru od mesta privanul tento spaleny brezovy list a usadil ho na preslicku. Je neuveritelne ze se ten list nerozpadnul ani kdyz shorel, ani pri ceste k nam, ani kdyz padal dolu k zemi.
