That warm glow though…

Wish I could have posted this last night.  I ended my day yesterday with a bike ride down by the river.  The “Mighty Mississippi” was unusually calm, it made for a very peaceful ending of the day.

 

Wishing you peaceful endings and calm waters as you float through this Wednesday…

Autumn’s Table

 

Come my friends, come sit with me

at a table midst the autumn trees

We’ll feast on colors warm and bright

delicious views to whet our appetite

This scene begged me to pause and snap a photo of it while I was passing through a rest area on a road trip up to the North Shore earlier this fall.  A lovely spot for an autumn picnic, don’t you think?

🙂

The Sunshine Tree

 

Come my love, play with me

lets frolic in the autumn leaves

and let our hearts run wild and free

underneath the sunshine tree

I’m telling you… I have never wanted to try and capture a scene more than this one.  This was one of the most beautiful, magical autumn settings I’ve ever seen (with my own eyes, I mean).  The golden sunlight shining on this golden tree took my breath away.   ❤

Most of the photos I snapped were over on the other side of the tree – that’s where the real magic was, but my lens kept picking up the glare of the sun, and I don’t know enough about photography nor have a camera that can do much more than just point and shoot, so I couldn’t quite capture the scene.  But that’s okay… I captured it in my mind and have it filed in my memory banks.  🙂

 

Plus, I also have this picture my sister took of me with her phone while I was in the moment…

Once again, I thought she was beside me snapping her own photos, but she was doing that ‘from my perspective’ thing again like in Capturing a Waterfall.

She’s the one who spotted the tree as we were driving down the road and slammed on her brakes.  I almost spilled my pumpkin spice latte.  Then she parked on the sidewalk.  I mean literally on it, as there was no parking on that road, nor any shoulder for us to pull over onto.  We were being totally illegal and totally not caring because it would have been totally worth the parking ticket.  And the spilled latte.  Which tasted all that much better after basking in the golden light of the sunshine tree.

Autumn’s Breath

 

I sigh and the leaves blush

in the light caress of your cool breath

Every Leaf

 

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.”

Sigh… I so relate to those words…

I’m heading up to the North Shore today to hopefully experience a bit of that bliss fluttering from the autumn trees as their “Fall Color report” says the area is a peak right now.

Wishing you some bliss too, have a lovely weekend my friends!

🙂

Autumn’s Floor

 

Autumn’s floor is a beautiful tapestry woven together with colorful leaves.
