grayed summer day

sometimes the bundles 
 yield quirky results
 shadows and wraiths on paper
 and cloths
layers of grays
my camera wouldn't read the pale greens
 or peaches
or distinct
rusty shapes on open weave.
and i just set the thing down and get back to work.
  black eyed susans cheer me up
especially after a three hour work meeting
from which i returned with a hollering headache.
this morning there are amazing gold lights
deep within backyard maples. 
sunlight playing games.
not autumn.
not yet.
