The world has sat, frozen, for centuries.
It does not think to make the right move, merely
moving in the direction it is going,
slowly forming into what is necessary.
What belongs slowly sliding in place
natural, cozy, perfect.
Something tells me this world is hiding something.
I don't know what it is, though I try and uncover.
But what I relinquish
I always am indebted for,
and what I control
is always unpredictable.
So I sit and wait
and try and comprehend
hoping one day
I will uncover the mystery.
The changing fall foliage never fails to surprise and delight me. I constantly find myself pulling aside on the road to pluck a few bursts of color from a tree. I was simply stunned by the color and capacity these leaves held. Birmingham, AL had such a beautiful fall... so I thought I would share a taste. Chlorophyll: the green color that dominates and masks out the colors of any other pigments that may be present in the leaf, which results in some fantastic fractal like veins of intense color.
