Fall in love with Maple in the Fall

Maple, WI in the Fall.... one of my favorite places in the world.

A red Maple leaf catching the morning sunlight
as it lays on a soft layer of moss in my grandmother's yard.

Golden sunlight slanting through the trees gilding leaves and casting inky shadows against the ground.

Briliant red Maple leaves drift in the wind,
swirling down to the ground
in an eternal ballet of color and sound

The swish and and pitter-patter
of brightly colored leaves rubbing against one another,
giggling with delight.

White birch trunks lift up to the sky
framed by the dark greens of Juniper and Pine.

The slow and patient growth of fungus
on the trunk of a rotting birch trunk.
