As I was raking leaves, I noticed this one maple standing alone, fully dressed in her early fall leaves. Evidently her abscission cells were not yet all lined up to create separation (smile), so I took this photo and wrote this haiku. I am sharing with you one of my favorite paintings in my home. The artist’s name is Ballance. I found the painting on Victoria Island, years ago. We walked into this woman’s studio out in the middle of nowhere, at the time, and I took one look at the painting and loved it.
I have not had an opportunity to check out this tree after the storm, perhaps all the leaves are gone now, as are so many. I am continuing to pray for all involved – so many lives affected.
I used Photoshop to blend the photos.
