Something Different

Why fit in when you were born to stand out? — Dr. Seuss

Red leaves

stand out among

the green and brown colors

of this Japanese maple tree.

How cool!

Note: Poetry form is a Cinquain inspired by Tanka.

    • As you can see, Linda, this one’s already showing signs of Fall color. I understand it turns a rich reddish shade. I suspect it recognizes the shorter hours of daylight and is looking forward to a cooler weekend (though experts would probably blame the early color on our scarcity of rainfall!)

  1. Yes, Debbie, how cool is that? And those leaves are so beautiful! Almost Fallish!

    Having spent time in Japan, I love anything that has to do with “Japanese.” The most beautiful gardens I ever saw, were in Japan. They take such pride and care in their gardening.

    Great words! Great photo!

    Enjoy the rest of your week, my friend!

    • This is a pretty tree, Ron. Its leaves are almost silky and its miniature size makes it ideal for landscaping purposes. If that weren’t enough, it turns a beautiful burgundy color when Fall arrives!

      Japanese gardens are famous for their beauty … and simplicity. The ones I’ve visited here (not in Japan) are breath-taking in their loveliness. Lucky you, getting to see the real things in Japan! xo
