Visual Treats and Trickery
There is no sun-shining in my windows today
Misty grey skies dull a simple snapshot,
but not my memory of a few days past
when trees bloomed on our city streets
showing more fire power than the mums
A few trees away from my window today
a golden orange burst of color glows
between trees of yellow and green,
like a fireworks display exploding
then stilled and captured on film.
The formula for nature's fall gown
of intense and glowing colors--
simply, sunny days,
and frequent rains.
Can you find the heart at the center of the tree?
During the night the vibrant colors began falling
creating circles of colors on the green grass below like a cup with a matching saucer.
No wind to disturb or break the rare sight.
Sometimes the sun and shadows
play tricks like children at
Our senses are keen, one with her nose to the ground
and the other with her eyes on the sky.
Sudden halts ring the alarm that a
squirrel past this way,
while frozen points
may find a deer not far away.
Can you name this Halloween tricker?
