From heron to eternity

What is more delicious than the bright flames of autumn

Heron1.jpg

And the zen of a heron gliding over the water

Before flying off into eternity?

Cloudscapes

Sometimes the rising sun (arriving later and later every day)

Sets the trees aflame;

As for the clouds,

They give double joy:

Once in the sky and once in water reflected.

Autumn surprises

Autumn is a golden

Curtain of leaves;

Goldenshower.jpg

It’s the russet fur

Of autumn-coloured dogs;

And the surprise of deer

Blending in with the trees.

Floating in mist

The first cool morning:

Autumn mist is golden

As it caresses trees

Mist.jpg

And floats over the lone dog walker.

(All photos snapped with my mobile phone.)

Curtains of light

Late August is a beautiful time of year

For light.

Fields of gold glow in the early morning;

Curtains of light float to the ground;

Light.jpg

And diamond drops glitter

In the deliciously chilly air.

Deer gazing

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 …

Eyes right

(And look surprised).

Swan lake – with mist

A chilly morning dawned

Bringing out the colours of the leaves

And the swans.

Misty swans

They appeared out of the mist

Like feathered ships.

Feathered ships

The sun bursting through the trees

Placed stripes of light on the swan’s neck.

Swan stripes

Closer and closer the swan sailed

Beautiful in the lilac dawn.

The sentinel

A strange pink glow

Beckoned me out into the storm.

Goose+sunset

There on the rickety jetty,

Was a lone goose

Staring out into the sunset.

Sky

It was a moment full of poignancy and beauty.

Just him and me

And the whisper of autumn.

Be-dewed

Autumn went by in the blink of an eye,

But before it disappeared, it left some dewy gifts:

Yellow suns,

Yellow suns

A spent sunflower

Adorned with a spider’s web,

Sunflower

A glorious necklace of dewdrops

On soft petals,

Be-dewed

Hot pink

Rainy flowers,

Pink beauty

And a dreamy

Pink tutu.

Zen-sational

Autumn is a time of exuberant energy —

It’s quite zensational, in fact.

Zen-sational

The golden coins of leaves

Hang like happy suns in the trees;

Golden coins

The light in the woods

Is magical.

Light copy

Everywhere you go,

You can see flying leaves

(Those black dots aren’t dirt, they are leaves!)

And beautiful views.

Golden view

And the best thing about autumn

Is that you’re never too old

To frolic in the leaves.
