Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Colorful Leaves



Autumn piñata
Colorful summer remnants
Spilled upon the ground

Spilled upon the ground
Bright candy colored leaves
Crisp Equinox air

Crisp Equinox air
Leaves fall from trembling tree
Autumn piñata

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  6. Wonderfully unusual mix of colors. Do U know which tree has purple leaves in fall?

  7. I am guessing Red Maple. This was taken up in Virginia last fall while I was visiting relatives and this yard is lined by deep woods. I grew up in that vicinity and then spent time in Maine so I have had the pleasure of experiencing spectacular fall colors. Where I live now doesn’t have a bright fall and I miss it terribly. As crazy as it sounds, I miss snow too. I really like areas with four seasons as each has its unique beauty.

  8. Tho I have never seen purple on red maple in the Hudson Valley, I have seen every shade of red (as well as orange and yellow). So purple in VA has plausibility. What little I can see of the leaf shape also looks consistent with red maple.

    I like winter also (but could get along w/o it). Fall color is a necessity.

  10. Thank you. Me too. I miss Maine the most in the fall.


  11. Yep. I miss the colours. I also miss the feel of the air, and its scent, in November, long after the leaves have fallen. Crisp and acrid.
