Autumn weeds.

Colors just happen in the fall.

Abundance of don’t-forget-to-touch-mes,

 but calming now, no longer explosive.

Truth, beauty, decay.

Sumac works through orange

into its final reds.

Spent and pulling back, residue of bloom.

Quiet all summer, the chimney rose seizes the day.

Still just a scatter, it’s early days.

Weeds are flowers

you don’t have to cultivate.

Sometimes the best colors

aren’t hardly colors at all.

Transition signs.

Through shot.

Thirteen bales, first cut in June, just three in September
after one of the driest summers on record, our record.
There was areal rain that kept sliding by.

The garden slows, but is not done.

Sidewalk sales.

The day of the recent rally
a couple guys in a big ol’ red pickup
set up their sales station.

Hundreds of Made-in-China “Make America” hats
in red and white and blue
plus a dozen cases of t-shirts and banners rolled up.

When they first arrived the wind was perfect,
all four banners pulled out straight south down Haywood Street:

Trump/Pence
Don’t Tread on Me
Old Glory
and the Battle Banner of the Late Failed Secession.

Then the wind shifted ever which way
and they all went a little twitchy.

American democracy
in all its grandeur
history itself
at the curb.

Fallen into dance.

Fall into Dance

The Asheville Ballet’s annual free performance in the park.

3-400 people watched and, if clapping and hooting count,
they enjoyed what they saw.

Photos are from last night’s performance (Friday, 23 Sept 2016).

One more show, tonight, Saturday, at 7:30 pm.

8 dances from 6 choreographers using 15 dancers,
beautiful work with poised and professional dancing.

Well-done tech — lights  and recorded sound and live music
— wonderful venue, perfect weather.
