If you were infested with the 17-year cicadas in June, then you know about leaf damage in your trees. As the wind blows or the branch dries up, the clump of leaves falls to the ground. With so many clumps to collect from the yard, a "leaf bouquet" is rapidly created. But as soon as you discard the bouquet, one more clump falls to the ground. So you begin again to create another leaf bouquet.
Isn't this just like life? We become "dried up" due to sin. We "fall" because our accumulated sin deadens us. We are "picked up" through the sacrament of Confession. We are transformed from "clumps of sin" into a beautiful "bouquet".
But then it starts all over again.
