|Oklahoma autumn, 5 by 7 watercolor, 300 lb. d'Arches|
the color of peaches
or perhaps souls
departing this world
with fond memories
Tanka poem, Michael McClintock
Autumn, my favorite season. Why?
The colors, the light, the cooler temperatures, sure. But more. Seed time, harvest. Continual reminders of universal death, shorter days, a dying year, weathering barns and people.
