Poison Ivy

Today I saw the beauty in poison ivy.  On the bikepath.  Autumn is upon us.  The leaves are beginning to change and drop.  The wind has picked up and shifted directions.  The tourists have vacated the Shining Sea Bikeway leaving me to bike among the squirrles, chipmunks, frogs, and my thoughts.

Today I saw the beauty in poison ivy.  In the marsh.  Nestled back behind the green to golden grass.  Red and vibrant.  Reaching up to the golden rays of the sun.  An awesome splash in the palette of the day.

Charlie always asks questions, like, "Why did God make mosquitoes?  Was it a mistake?"

Today I say, there may have been a reason.
