You caught my eye the other day,
You probably didn't think I would notice.
The subtle pop of color,
Bright orange is hard to disguise.
I couldn't help but wonder
if you're mocking me!
Reminding of summer's expiration date.
Gutsy for someone who stands among
the "nonliving", and soon will display
the splendor of autumn.....
Near the neighborhood we live in is located a large cemetary. It runs a few city blocks long and is filled with big huge old oak and maple trees. In the fall many people walk through there to enjoy the autumn colors. The other day I noticed that one of the maple trees is already changing colors. In a sea of green is this bright spot of orange. The air is cooler at night with a hint of sharpness. Although the days are warm fall is lingering and isn't so far away.....hope you all have an awesome weekend. I've packed some books and the kids and I are headed to the cottage for some r & r.....
