#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream
Isn't sumac a most delightful surprise of a November ramble?
On this, the second gloomy gray-sky morning in a row, I'm grateful
for this standing upright in the dilapidated field, stark and startling
in the tattered sweetgrass, enlivening the landscape and my
mood. Thanksgiving is more than one day, it's a season of the spirit
and even as the easy bright days of finer weather have finished, sumac
reminds me: in a cheerless landscape - give your heartiest self.
