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.
I hope you enjoy my moments, and that you also find time in your autumn days to soak in nature’s magnificence.
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.
