A Little Color in an Otherwise Gray Day

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.


Oh, I so agree with you: Paradise is alight with color--and your colorful submission (on this mostly grey West Coast day) is superb!

This is a wonderful day brightener! We have sun here but it is so low in the sky and a burst of color is so welcome! Have a peaceful happy holiday!

Good evening, Meri. Yes indeed, on gloomy, gray days color is the solution. Color on -- AND -- Merry Christmas.
