This verse presents the belief that the journey is in each leaf and bad along the way. When we keep our heart open, we can commit to that journey.

 The gate stands opn, beckoning me to climb.

Each step leads further in my journey, offering repeated opportunity to examine myself... my life... the leaves that have fallen, the leaves that will fall, and the buds yet to form.

Once begun, I commit to the climb, for despite both rocky and smooth times that I will encounter, the journey's reward is in each blossom and each leaf along the way.

Absolutely beautiful. In March I love the white buds that turn into leaves outside of my home. Thanks for this beautiful poem.
