Wintry Reeds

Brown reeds cluster along a neighborhood lake.

As I searched for a breath of brilliant late-fall color in our neighboring community, I came upon some brown reeds guarding a lake.


The flora actually looks fuzzy close up, with bits of white interspersed among the darker hue. But it’s still pretty drab and uninspiring.

A duck doesn’t care about the reeds as it swims by.

Where oh where was that spark of color that would bring a smile to my face amid hopes of a mild winter?

A tiny, purplish-white daisy breaks up the brown monotony of the grass.

There it is!

  1. How beautiful!! I l loved the order of the pictures. the duck was a surprise –so dark and definite in contrast to the gauzy reeds and then the happy brilliance of that sun-like flower; poetry in motion!
