Adrift in Autumn


Crisp edges lifted,
A leaf Armada awaits 
The least breath of Fall.
A sudden breeze sends
New fallen leaves skittering
Over still water. 

Reds, yellows, oranges
On the mirror of the pond
Silently skimming. . .

Beautiful...so serene. We got a little snow here yesterday, but I haven't been out to check the leaves...hope they weren't ruined.

Lovely juxtaposition of surface darkness reflecting the tree, and light leaves that float (for a while).

Gorgeous photos and beautiful words! I am pea green with envy over the falling leaves photo. I've tried to catch them for years... sigh.

Vicki, your leafy armada have found a glorious sea in which to sail. And what beautiful light and clear reflections you found.

That is a wonderful setting and I like how the photos progress from close up to larger scene with wonderful reflection of the tree.

Haikus from Beaufort

Odd creatures flying
formation, the pelicans
come back to the beach.

Yellow marsh grass bends
to welcome the chilly tide
We wait for winter.

Autumn leaves are infinitely fascinating. I love watching them rain down from the trees and tremble on the surface of water.

Drifting leaves in a world of poetry!
