What I enjoy most about this picture is the bright blue 
edging around the leaf, created by the sky's 
reflection in the water.

I went out today, camera in my pocket, as usual,
but the day was gray all around, leaves
matted into brown carpets on the sidewalks.
The poor trees, tall as ever in the park,
looked as though they were huddled together,
their limbs shivering in the chilly breeze
from their nekkidness.

We are all in the gutter, and while some of us are looking at the starts, some - like this leaf - are getting sunburn under clear blue skies.
Lovely photo, Speedway.

"Looking at the STARTS?"
Sheesh! It's only half-seven on a Monday morning and already the Senior Moments are creeping in. It's gonna be a long week.

It's OK, Dive, I knew what you meant. Hoping you got enough sleep last night so you won't feel so addled later.

Poor leaf, all sunburned with no shade. But if it were looking at the star(t)s, how could it get sunburned? ;-)

Love how you found brightness in a gray day, complete with with blue outline!

Thank you for noticing that I had "gone missing." It was a horrible feeling, like I had been robbed. Thankfully, I was able to restore my blog.
