Sugar on Leaves

A Haiku for you:

The NIP in the AIR
The FROST on the COLD, HARD ground
Feels like WINTER's here

During my photography walk yesterday, I saw this. They look like sugared cookies, don't they? Yellow, orange, and red maple leaves covered a small yard - it made me think of  leaf-motif rugs and how they would look if a little child accidentally spilled a bowl of sugar on them.

Despite the chilly temperatures, it felt good to be walking around, compared to the 90 degree weather from just a few short weeks ago.
