I went for a walk on the Cedar River Trail to see the Golden Gingko in glory.
I gawked – like I did when I saw it the first time, years ago.
I stopped to bask in its color and admire it from this way and that, from the ground up to the sky above
bright against its neighbor.
Their combined leaves took on a magical quality
and then I noticed the chickadees
happy and energetic, flitting from branch to branch, feeding, oblivious to me watching below.
I was happy to share in their joy.
