Color on sidewalks
Blazing leaves toasting the sky
Remind me of home
Ah! a moment of nostalgia. I live only a few hundred kilometers away from my former adult home (Toronto) and my childhood home (Ottawa), but the trees are different here—mostly evergreens—not the leafy types that display red, orange, and yellow in the fall. I do miss walking out the door and seeing autumn colors. Here I am surrounded by green and brown spruce—no colors unless I go for a drive on the highway where my eyes can feast on blazing landscapes.
