September daze

There is something glorious about the late September light.

It warms the heart

And lights up unexpected autumn cameos

In hidden pockets of the woods.

It unfurls ribbons of water

Inviting you to take a dip if you’re brave enough;

And, on the last day of September,

Its glorious golden rays turn the woods into a painting

That speaks of children climbing in the trees

All the way up to the sky

To touch that lovely light

And spread it to the world like laughter.

  3. Such a wonderful ode to September – in words and photos, Fi. This line especially tugs at my heart:

    “That speaks of children climbing in the trees

    All the way up to the sky

    To touch that lovely light

    And spread it to the world like laughter”

    Which photo to choose as a favorite? I can’t – impossible!

  4. I love the golden light in that shot of the maple treelet beside the huge boulder!! Especially the shadow behind the leaf!!
    And the view of the dog swimming in the water! I love the ripples of water, and the vast blueness surrounding her!

  5. Such beautiful words and pictures, and beyond that, a beautiful way of looking at the world. I see that someone way up there in the comments wants to live where you live. I believe that is a state of mind that you carry with you!

  6. Wonderful captures LadyFi.

    I did have to laugh at the girl climbing the tree. Our kids love to do that, but the trees up here are not very climb-friendly. I think our gang would enjoy your part of the world.

  8. You always have such stunning photos posted, I am never disappointed when I stop by our place. Your Golden is one lucky dog to be out swimming as often as he/she is. My girls always enjoy a good swim in the bay, ocean, creek or even a mud puddle.

  11. Such a fantastic turn of words:

    “That speaks of children climbing in the trees
    All the way up to the sky
    To touch that lovely light
    And spread it to the world like laughter.”

    I drove back and forth across our state this week and was totally dazzled by the warm Autumn light.

  12. Indeed, September has that undefined beauty of summer and autumn simultaneously. It is the month of that subtle transition, when the platinum light of summer turns into gold.
    Lovely sentiments to ponder when September is a memory only and October almost over.;)
    And of course, lovely photography as always.
    xoxo
