7 November







to walk around the island was one of her favorite things


 the smell of the leaves

the crunch and shuffle of them underfoot


she loved to see them floating gently down 

shining in the light against the blue autumn sky

all blown about and blustery

during a rainy windstorm in November

there are those who rake them up as soon as they fall

let life rush by their doorways


there is a sweetness when one lingers in the autumn

and for a little while

she lets the leaves stay as they lay

  7. What a lovely shot! We let ours linger and enjoying playing in them, but I think we put off raking mostly out of laziness ;)

  14. I love the idea of letting the leaves lay where they fall. Sadly, they blow over to my neighbour's property,though...and he doesn't like that. Hmmm.

    Lovely photo. It reminds me of my childhood somehow.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
