Fall Colors on the Water

Rumpled, rustic aluminum canoe skims across the rain-dropped lake surface.

Arrived at the green lily pad carpeted bay silently in search of fall colors.

Insect eaten leaves of green, yellow, red and brown dress the surface.

Straw colored grasses wave in the wind dancing with the brown, sleek cattail in unison.

Majestic white lily sits like a crown upon a green pad.

Green popcorn-like pods line the stalk like a magic wand.

Silvery translucent leaves float barely below the surface decaying daily.

Dappled brown log floats below the water’s surface with a birch log nearby.

Floating grassy bog rocks in the gentle waves.

Fall is here.
