After the Winter

Some day, when trees have shed their leaves
And against the morning’s white
The shivering birds beneath the eaves
Have sheltered for the night,
We’ll turn our faces southward, love,
Toward the summer isle
Where bamboos spire the shafted grove
And wide-mouthed orchids smile.

And we will seek the quiet hill
Where towers the cotton tree,
And leaps the laughing crystal rill,
And works the droning bee.
And we will build a cottage there
Beside an open glade,
With black-ribbed blue-bells blowing near,
And ferns that never fade.

Bits and Bobbs, of a beautiful Autumn

km Salvatore from Western New York lives on the Erie Canal where there’s always something going on, in any number of the towns scattered along the water way. He also lives between 2 Great Lakes where also there’s always something to shoot.

The park and the wall on his photo’s reminds us of the park in Tervuren near Brussels.

In his surroundings he knew to capture the vivid life Autumn also can bring.

Autumn Verses

In Belgium the last few days, in day time, have shown higher temperatures (17°C) than normal for the time of year, but the leaves colouring and falling off tell us that it is really autumn.

*

looking at

  • summer idles soon dissolve
  • October’s captured insects > spiders all well fed
  • woodyard debris,
  • frosty days arrive with each November,
  • dense cloud of leaves.
  • Unfazed by promise of mortality
  • comfort in the silence and stillness.

Mortality, and the confrontation we have with it, does force us to pay attention to those details.{lazarusdodge}
