From my usual spot on the sofa, I can look out one of the living room windows and see a bright yellow leafed tree. My eyes are too bad to zero in on the leafs to see if it is a maple or oak.
It has been kissed by the God of Autumn and stands tall allowing me enjoy its beauty.
Soon, the real Fall rains will begin and the wind will pick up and the tree will lose its beautiful color, until Spring brings buds of new life and leaves of green.
So I will enjoy its beauty now and know that the cycle of life continues for us all.
