Colorblind Harmony


Fall in the Greatr Smoky Mountains
Climbing Craggy Dome’s 5,930 ft. summit to gaze out over the Smokies’ kaleidoscopic fall splendor was worth every bead of perspiration to get there.   The indescribable beauty of the tranquil sea of speckled colors below attested to our indescribable Creator . . . another soul soothing scene brushed across the mountains. A mile up in the NC Smokies A single orange leaf, dislodged  by a gentle breeze, floated to my feet, and I got to a-thinkin’ . . . Flaming Fall Color
  • How many gadzillions of leaves comprised the blanket of color draping the landscape to the horizon before me?
  • How many different brilliant and muted hues intermingled to produce such harmonious beauty?
Then it got personal:
  • Why can’t earth’s nearly 8 billion residents, with all our varied colors and hues, intermingle together in harmony?
  • Could it be that Mother Nature is colorblind?
  • Someday, each of our life’s leaves will drift to the ground.  What colors did they display in mankind’s forest?  I pray some of mine were ever-green.
Smoky Mt. Fall ‘Orange’ you glad I asked? Didn’t mean to ‘needle’ you. 😊
