The landscape was bathed in a momentary deluge soaking everything in sight to soften reflections and deepen the flames of fall. Was it providence that drew my attention through the passenger car window as I passed? Such beauty by the roadside and so easily missed in the rainfall – but not to be overlooked today – so awe inspiring in its simplicity was this un-named cascade tumbling out of the forest. I count myself fortunate to have seen it, this living image quickening in the senses, never before quite as it was that day and never again to be repeated.
