Photo Verse for October

Prose becomes verse on autumnal days.

Trees catch fire, burning brighter than words,

Their golden reds taunting the murky depths.

Maples fireworks explode in clear blue skies.

Pines shadows highlight this deciduous extravagance. 

How can these gaudy colors be natural?

I am no poet, but October engenders such reflections.

You're a poet, but don't know it, because you live on Longfellow.

All, thanks! The red maples are now down and the sugar maples are nearly done, but the beeches and oak are kicking in with golds and russets.

You are a poet with that camera. :) These photos are breathtaking, and I love your imagery of the color exploding on the blue sky. It does, it does.

That first photo caused me to pause. So beautiful. I love mirror-like, still water.
