golden, orange and yellow leaves glimmer in the setting sun
this is one of the first signs that summertime is done
I can hear the soft rustling as they fall from the trees
soaring and gliding as they are blown through the breeze
masses of leaves form into one
plants are decaying,
lifeless and swaying
shadows are growing,
less light is showing
no sound or peeping
the whole world knows that fall has begun

Rustling leaves echo
Branches sway as the wind gathers speed and
Scares the birds away
Thick clouds move
Across the sky
Shadows move with them
Icy wind cuts into skin
Catching breath is a struggle
Doors slam, windows rattle
But suddenly the clouds
The screams of the wind fade
The sun is allowed to shine
People step outside
The birds return

Resplendent hues appease my vision,
Fall has fulfilled its yearly mission,
Sporadic breezes blow leaves around,
Forming multi-colored patterns upon the ground.
Sparrows utter subtle sounds,
As frantic squirrels make their rounds,
Brisk weather chases summer’s bugs,
Emerald lawns become saffron rugs.
Children pile all the leaves they can muster,
Indian summer provides added luster,
Autumn is a season full of esteem,
It is a time of nature’s brightest gleam.

As the morning morphed into noon, Apollo was rapidly glowing brighter and brighter. I could see the strong rays of light darting through the guest room’s window piercing a Victorias Secret bag on top of a black TV set making it bleed in explosive red. Tenuous and affrighted grays sought refuge on the walls of the room in the background.
This contrast of colors attracted my attention, and by an act of unconscious reflex made me capture the scene before the light was gone. This is what I saw, a duel between the red and the black in the midst of a storm of light. Here we go.
I’m psychologically inclined to appreciate the green color. When I see something green, my eyes are immediately fixed to that coloration. That’s the reason I enjoy the rainy season so much. Even though the traffic is terrible when it rains, and you get wet, and you get your shoes soggy and dirty, all around you is painted green. The trees, shrubs, flowers, grass; all are decked with green. It’s lovely! Maybe I have an Irish descent, I don’t know—they also enjoy the green color.
Below is a picture of a small palm inside a mall in the neighborhood of El Dorado. Notice the magic spell of the green color. Enjoy.
Afro-Panamanians have played a significant role in the creation of the Republic of Panama. Some historians have estimated that up to 50 percent of the population of Panama has some African ancestry. The descendants of the Africans who arrived during the colonial era are intermixed with the mainstream population, or are found in small Afro-Panamanian communities along the Atlantic Coast and in villages in the Darién jungles.
Other Afro-Panamanians are the descendants of later migrants from the Caribbean who came to work on railroad construction projects, commercial agricultural enterprises, and especially the canal. Important Afro-Caribbean community areas include towns and cities such as Colon, Cristobal and Balboa, in the former Canal Zone, as well as the Rio Abajo area of Panama City. Another region with a large Afro-Caribbean population, is the Province of Bocas del Toro on the Caribbean coast bordering Costa Rica.
These ethnic groups brought with them the rich culture with deep roots in the African continent. One of the distinct characteristic is the beauty of their architecture. Below are several examples of houses which depict their taste for large houses with ample corridors and high ceilings. Many foreign visitors would love to own a house like these with wrap around porches to catch the cool summer breeze blowing inland from the ocean.
