... colors just seem to pop in
Autumn.  The humidity has
been scraped out of the air,

so nothing gets in the way ---
they just explode with hues
so bright it shocks the eyes

with pleasure.  Take this
sunflower --- golden against
cobalt skies.  It nearly drove

me to my knees to envision
such beauty.  Such a simple
thing but one I needed ---

especially today.  Daddy
would have been 80 years
old.  Instead of me giving him

a present, he gave me one
wrapped with the brightest
wrappings he could find.

(c) 2010, Karla Dorman (10/2)
