Inversions

Red and Green
From summer green to autumn red
To winter white and rest.
Arise from winter's silent bed.
Spring has passed the test.

Linked to Cosmic Photo Challenge where Dale offers the theme of inversions. While walking in the forest preserve, I ran into a maple tree that had turned deep red earlier than the others. Unsure of what an inversion was, I thought of this change as an inversion, moving from summer green to autumn red.

Also linked to Trent P. McDonald’s The Weekly Smile. Outside of an email exchange with someone offering a proof of the 3x+1 conjecture, I did not update my program further. So no excuse for a smile from that quarter, but weather was beautiful, I explored new trails in the forest preserve and I enjoyed (online) The Return, the Washington Prayer March on Saturday. Many smiles there.

Another smile arriving this very morning came from listening to Crystal Grimes’ composition Gratitude DSE #9.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

      1. You’re welcome, Frank…and suddenly I’m reminded of those TV commercials about “inversion therapy”–do you know the ones I’m talking about? Some guy named Teeter invented a frame type thing that puts you upside down…and it’s supposed to be a cure-all. Just the idea of it makes me woozy! 🙂
