The Fall Leaves Went Sailing

Fall has basically finished its work of stripping the glory from the trees.

No more shade trees....who needs them now?
 The hills seem barren....

that's because the wind took the leaves for a ride.
 Some of the leaves went sailing.

   In the picture below, the leaf in the upper right looks like it is soaring, but it is actually snorkeling.  The leaves are floating on the water.  The one on the right has become water-logged.  Only the tip of its stem brakes the surface of the water.  Soon it will sink.  That's the fate of many leaves.
Leaves in a stream
What's in store for that water-logged leaf?
