A few tenacious raindrops are clinging
to the scrawny fingers of the vine maple.
After winds knocked Douglas fir cones
loose from my neighbor's tree
(why do they only fall in my yard?)
now the smoke from my other neighbor's chimney
is rising almost straight up.
It's a fine day, I think,
for a splash of color.

Not my usual submission,
and not a series of images,
but I'm thinking this might be today's
because to me
paradise is alight with color.
