Fiery Maple

(Toledo, OH) While out walking the other day I paused to appreciate the brilliant red hues of some maple trees in a local park. What I found particularly interesting was a series of maples lined up along a path on which I walked, as the fiery red hues created the impression of a string of torches blazing away in the cool fall afternoon.

The colors seemed almost surreal, like a set of truck accessories with fluorescent flame details one might find on a tricked-out Chevrolet S-10 parked at a West Virginia flea market or something, only with a fire-and-brimstone preacher on the back passing out Bibles and boxes of Hot Tamales.

That kind of sureeality.
