Autumn Singing

oh listen to autumn’s  symphony,

as leaves fall in tuneful arpeggios.

The birch and poplar are keyboards playing to an alto wind,

and I want to be a leaf  held in the soft hands of it’s drifting melody.

Autumn is taking hold  and I’m letting summer expectations fall into the earth’s weaving of  her colourful quilt as  she prepares us for winter’s slumbering quiet. 

As some of you may have noticed I have slowed down in the blogosphere.  My attentions have been diverted elsewhere (not all creative!), I’ll probably continue to be somewhat sporadic for awhile but I hope by the end of the year I will be doing  better. I hope all is well with my friends and followers and I will be still checking out your blogs (excuse my “behindedness!”), and also posting a few pics to Flickr between blog posts.

this was my submission to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness this last week

Summer end’s lament

My sister is now living in Sidney by the Sea, an hours’ drive away and  here are two images from a fine early fall day in that pretty little port!
