Nature Inspired: To Autumn

As summer fades to autumn — my feet, mind, heart & pen have been inspired by nature’s beauty. Here are some of the photos I’ve taken on walks, stopping to capture quiet moments in the sunlight.

While I have written short poems for some, I don’t feel the need for words with all of them or to share them in this post. Sometimes, it is enough just to look and listen, experiencing the moment in feelings rather than words.

Listen to John Keats’ To Autumn — written in September of 1819, it moves through the season from warmth to cold, blossoming to dying. His poem speaks of the beauty in nature’s cycle, and in life.

  1. The perfect poem to match your works, written, in picture, and conjured up, is Keats’ “Autumn”, you made very good selection. Keats tells of a series of scenes whereby Autumn is pictured by description of items in his rural world. After your introduction I could easily sense the presence of Autumn by your scenes.
    My favorite is the gazebo, with its final foliage manicure for winter needed.
    My favorite of Keats is
    “… by a cyder-press, with patient look,
    Thou (Autumn) watchest the last oozings hours by hours.
