Time of day when tree trunks and faces

are caught in the same gold leaf.

Cracks in the pavement, muted by shadow

Our trunks faces hands & leaves are golden.

    Very lovely. Like a haiku in its economy and power of word choice. Thanks. Sara

  2. Marguerite, I love the way you captured that very particular quality of late afternoon light. Gold leaf, yes!
