Wonder Of Change

Along the path

a spot where water collects

is now a puddle of autumn’s amber leaves.

A few months ago,

as cliff swallows collected material for their nests,

it was place for spring rain, mud, and new life.

.

Yesterday, as we walked, it was quiet,

nothing competing with the small voice of a chickadee in a nearby tree,

while along the path,

the leaves, in gentle release, drifted down like soft snow

and the sun struggled to warm us,

as it danced between the clouds.

***

.

Today, into the wind, I lowered my head and grabbed the brim of my hat,

as leaves in wild flight,

having lost the battle,

were torn from almost bare branches.

***

.

Tomorrow,

the journey continues

and with it

the wonder of change.

  1. The Wakeeva NP opening photo is Claude Monet’s Impressionism through the eyes of a photographer; extraordinary! The other lake shot reveals that water can see the integrated unity of all nature; even roots, rocks, and leaves as one. I’m beginning to learn that the artist has a sixth sense that starts from. they eye but moves beyond the five senses. Please keep teaching us.

    • Berry, thanks so much for your kind words. I take plenty of snap shots, and even some good shots, but every once and awhile I an opportunity to take a picture that speaks to my soul.

  2. Thank you for using your words to take me with you to that quiet and wild place. It was exactly where I ached to be.
