This maple leaf has no business turning colors already.

Maple leaves in high drama, their lives at full tilt. This is what they were created to do.

I found this maple volunteering in our yard. It’s barely taller than the grass, but the leaves are fully developed.

Most mornings and evenings I take a turn about the house, looking for what’s different. What I know after a year looking through the lens is that the light is different, always. Flowers open, they are eaten by bugs, spiders spin, a Queen Anne’s lace volunteers in the middle of my yard. It’s been so long since rain, and therefore since mowing, that species you never knew were in your yard—species that thrive on six weeks of parching—are standing a foot high while the grass lies vanquished.

But my people have shown our favor on the maple and the hydrangea, granted them a sip of city water, and now, in the evening, they shade my porch.
