Leaves... colorful, dancing and falling to earth

Pictures of Fall
Fall is beautiful for the intense colors, but also for those subdued tones that have a wonderful appeal.

Fall's Brief Intense Glory
The leaves, like bits of colorful confetti
Suddenly appear on various trees, quickly turning
To reds, yellows and oranges among the green
Brightening gently like a fire flaming to life
The color spreads and intensifies
Till it seems to take over the whole tree
Each individual leaf a small spot of color
That joins the others to create quite a show
The rich blue sky and bright autumn sun
Enrich those leaves with extra contrast
Till a riot of beautiful colors appears all around
Reflected as a glow on water, windows and walls
This season of fall, just before winter
A time of seeming death as leaves die
Yet, only preparing the tree for the rest needed
To grow new leaves in the spring and start again
How like God to allow us to view the brilliant display
As the leaves depart in a blaze of fine glory
Leaving lingering beauty in our minds
For the more subdued days of winter to come
So, let us enjoy this developing show and watch
For bits of soft color developing into more
As the intense brilliance bursts here and there
A short glory made memorable by its brevity
Thank you for visiting. I love to hear from you, so feel free to leave a comment. :)

Red Wing Blackbird and Echinacea Flowers...
A red-winged blackbird was at the park and I was finally able to get some photos of one of these colorful winged birds.

Ducklings and Their Mama
Ducklings are fun to watch. They are inquisitive... and sometimes are very fast. Ducklings are a lot of work, but they are also so very cute!
Mama Duck took a quick bath while watching her little ones as they waited beside the pool.
