Nature is a masterpiece

I slowly make my way down to the lake,

Hoping to see autumn miracles.


The early morning is moody and mysterious,

Yet I glimpse masterpieces of autumn

In the gloomy light.


As it gets brighter, the peaceful grey sky

Makes the colours of leaves and fur pop.


The dogs chase one another,

Oblivious of the copper and gold around them.

When I get back to the boat that you see in the second photo,

The sun shines — leaving me with the beautiful taste

Of lemon glaze on water.

  4. These are beautiful photos and words. I love how you used the words “mysterious” and “moody” which are not commonly used to describe the early morning. It brings more life to the moment, and makes us feel connected to nature. It is an amazing feeling, thank you.
