Wonderful things happen when the sun
Breaks through in a ball of golden glow.
The sunshine hitting cold ground
Creates an angel of light
As fog rises to meet the dawn.
Cobwebs strung across the fields
Are delicate, golden threads
And feathery fluff from wild flowers
Rests among friends in a field
Of golden bokeh.
(By the way, it started to snow here on November 1st!)

When the sun rises
And autumn leaves catch fire,
You can see copper flames
Reflected in the lake,
And lemon lanterns
Lighting the way to winter.

Autumn makes me rich
As it leaves its golden coins on the shore of the lake.
Misty pastel pinks
Blend with lilac clouds and autumn trees.
I stand in awe and drink in the wonder.

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.

I’m living in a beautiful world
Where autumn leaves and skies are reflected
On mirror surfaces of the lake;
Where the sky
Is upside down in beautiful reflections;
Are luminous in the water;
And where dogs
Swim in clouds.

Living near a new part of the lake
Gives wide views from stony cliffs.
Ruby glows among the autumn leaves
As she jumps up on a big rock that is more than 2 metres high.
Simmie prefers to camouflage himself
Among the yellow lanterns of leaves.
A leaf shines
Like a ruby;
And the brilliance of a fallen leaf
Reflects onto rock like molten gold.

Autumn is a good time for the deer:
One minute you only see fields,
And the next minute, the deer are there.
Their dance is perfectly synchronized:
Eyes front …
(And look surprised).
And enjoy the golden light of autumn.

Standing on the edge of the lake,
The water as calm as a mirror,
I spot swans
On the other side
And a bridge floating
Among luscious green reflections.

I have lots more photos from Portugal to share with you —
But I thought I’d take a break this week
And show you the beauty of raindrops
Dancing on the edge of
Beautiful green leaves (some would say weeds).
These shots remind me of a lovely Tagore quote:
Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.
For more dancing, go to: Our World.
Early summer is
A symphony of green and wildlife:
The green is
Sometimes luminous and startling,
Sometimes like dewy
And sometimes abstract paintings
In the rain.
