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.
