Extension of its Own Self

The ground is covered with leaves A grouping of orange all around A reddish purple exists Where green used to be There lies the shadow From a tree that stands In formation With more of these leaves Some a lavender color The tree stands firm A solid trunk it has This skeleton of branches And of a firm base Is reflected directly Onto the ground Lending a mirror view With the leaves on the ground Looking just like the leaves That are on the tree itself Beauty upon beauty It looks like an extension Of its own self These two are united Through the ground

    Russell you have a great observation of colors that make up shadows. I like the shadow's mirror image of the tree. This is what makes a painting pop. The art is at the center of your fantastic poem. I hope all are felling better from the car accident. Warm Smiles, Connie
