Day 278: Autumn Colour


Day 278: Autumn Colour, originally uploaded by susanvg.

Autumn sets the leaves on fire
Bursts of red like flames
Licking up to the sky
I often wonder why some branches blaze
while others hold onto their green garments
And why this majestic display
before the long sleep of winter

  1. Both words and photo outstanding, Susan. I like the building in the background, too.

  2. The colour is exceptional this year. That tree is beautiful with its wide range of colour. Today's wind should change that scene considerably.
