Lilac wonder

Autumn makes me rich

As it leaves its golden coins on the shore of the lake.

Pink sky.jpg

Misty pastel pinks

Blend with lilac clouds and autumn trees.

I stand in awe and drink in the wonder.

    Beautiful. I was startled at the lilac and green afternoon skies when we were in the Arctic. I suppose it has something to do with the angle of the sun’s rays. It’s very pretty anyway. 🙂
