True Colors

I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors, true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Beautiful, like a rainbow.
                         Phil Collins, True Colors

I realize the words above mean something else entirely but I was out and about on a dreary, drizzly day earlier this week and the words to True Colors, by Phil Collins, popped into my head. This flag hangs in the trees day and night and at night a single light illuminates its simple but powerful glory. As I stood and leaned on a nearby fence to take some shots, a few minutes later a voice behind me said, "Isn't it beautiful?" I turned to see a woman in her car who stopped to verbalize my thoughts exactly. I responded, "Yes it is especially in the mist."

I always though Cindy Lauper wrote that song. I guess when I see the words, I hear her singing it. Nice shot. I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving! : )
