Pictures on the Sidewalk

PICTURES ON THE SIDEWALK

By Mary Burns

Another drizzly, gray Seattle day.
I could mope and complain,
as I sometimes do.
Instead I grab my umbrella
and go for a walk in the rain.

And as I walk,
I notice the rain-slick sidewalk
marked by autumn colors
in scattered patterns,
beautiful to behold.
Hushed golds,
muted greens,
glorious crimson-orange.

Each tree an artist,
leaving pictures on the sidewalk.
