Lightly child, lightly

The leaves are turning,
one by one carried away in the crisp wind […]
Away, away, says the blue and gold day,
and no one hears it but the wind…
Sit here —…
This is heaven.
Sit. Stay.

~ Margaret Gibson, from “Heaven“ in Broken Cup: Poems

  5. Funny; I just took a few shots in Switzerland, where we enjoy a week of music and singing in the most beautiful mountain village – lots of yellow and reddish leaves tumbling to the ground, but also plenty of sunshine and autumnal warmth – soul fodder!

  11. What a stunning shot, David.
    We had so much rain in the last 24 hours, I fear I won’t be able to take any more glorious pictures… Though I shall go out and see.
