American Gold

When you stay in one place most of the time, it is sometimes difficult to detect the changing of the seasons.
Traveling around the country, it is easier to see.
Autumn came to America this past weekend.
The countryside is turning gold.
Not the dry, used up gold of dead stalks . . .
this is the vibrant gold of harvest .

I believe this is a field of soybeans.
As I drive through the center of the country, I am passing field after field of deep green turning to this deep vibrant gold. Since they are interspersed with corn, I can only think it is soybeans. Whatever it is, it is just stunningly beautiful.
