Capturing The Magic Of Autumn ~ Poetry & Photography

The ever changing face of Nature’s canvas never disappoints. The arrival of Autumn bestows a dazzling beauty that transcends the mundane and stirs the senses. Woodland paths blanketed by a multi-hued carpet of leaves enhanced by the vivid glow of an autumn sunset. Vibrant reds, rusty oranges and golden shades of yellow foliage offer a feast of inspiration for nature and art lovers alike. To me the season offers a sensory delight as I love watching the leaves change colour and dance gracefully in the wind. I love the feel of crunchy textures under my feet and inhaling the musky-sweet aroma of decaying leaves. It’s a welcome consolation from the retreating light and warmth as summer bids us a fond farewell.

Spending time photographing the seasonal splendour is a joy to behold. So let us bathe in the beauty of Autumn; a gift beyond measure, and ponder the wonder of Nature; my Muse.

A blade of grass ~ by Kahlil Gibran

Said a blade of grass to an autumn leaf, “You make such a noise falling! You scatter all my winter dreams.”

Said the leaf indignant, “Low-born and low-dwelling! Songless, peevish thing! You live not in the upper air and you cannot tell the sound of singing.”

Then the autumn leaf lay down upon the earth and slept. And when spring came she waked again — and she was a blade of grass.

And when it was autumn and her winter sleep was upon her, and above her through all the air the leaves were falling, she muttered to herself, “O these autumn leaves! They make such a noise! They scatter all my winter dreams.”

Nights draw in, as summer ends,
and natures bounty upon the land.
Acorn and nut, seed and berry,
Autumn’s gift are all around.

Days grow cold, as Autumn calls,
and creation give its final show.
Dazzling reds, and brilliant yellows,
Autumn paints this once green land.

A seasonal cycle, draws to a close,
and prepares for death that is at hand.
Autumn and Winter, Spring and Summer,
The seasons show their changing face.
