Gathering of leaves




Such glorious fall days ~

Oh, wow! Autumn comes to Boise and the leaves do what the leaves do best.
But the maples are just showing off.
Beautiful, Ms.M.

Ms M said...

Thank you, Dive. Yes, the maples do have a bit of "show boat" about them, don't they?
Now it's turned cold and the leaves are falling like rain from the trees.

I was feeling all jet-laggy from the time change, but your maple shocked me back to the living.

Altadenahiker: That maple is a shocking red, isn't it? Glad it brought you back to life :-)

Welcome,1er Cru, and thank you!

to create that symphonic
spectrum, the old man crippled
aims his scissors
this way & that
across lemon & leafy
100 pound paper, precise
cuts until autumn
shatters absolute white
of his studio --

not imitating nature, just
composing as you

press the shutter
opening nature to

adoration deeper than intentional
prayer

Thank you, Anon. I can "see" the old man at brilliant work through your words.
