Fall color comes in every hue,
from blindingly bright to hushed and quiet.
There is color in fruits, not only leaves.
Wild grapes, as well as domesticated grapes in vineyards,

Asters are the brightest fall flowers
in fields and along roadsides.
Some colors are very subtle
but merit close attention.
Then there are nature's patterns,
beautiful even with color subtracted
