There are still a few days left of summer, but leaves have started to fall.
Some do not seem to want to and like this leaf, float suspended between the tree and the ground, held aloft by the magic of one strand of a spider's silk.
Between them, the man who used his saw to cut the cement and the one who filled it in, they could not have composed a more perfect balance of line and shades of gray if they had tried.
And here, Nature has left an impression on the sidewalk,
staining it with the color of a leaf from a tulip tree.
