Each year, Autumn approaches with a brush in hand. I wait in anticipation of its artistic masterpiece. This holiday weekend, my son traveled to West Virginia with my daughter and her family to find fall. He captured its splendor with his iPhone camera. I added a bit of digital magic to his glorious photo and penned haikus after delving into the photo.
fall dresses in turning leaves
in this place of peace
nature brushstrokes a canvas
Autumn is a Slice of Life that transforms the world into a living museum of artistic pleasure.
I add my thoughts to Two Writing Teachers' Slice of Life Tuesday.
Consider offering a photograph and poem or inspirational thought of
autumn's brilliance for a fall gallery of artistic expressions.
Carol, what a sweet offering you have given us today. Yes, indeed, "a living museum of artistic pleasure" is such a beautiful phrase. That scene in West Virginia looks like "nature celebrates" -- yes!ReplyDelete
Denise, thanks for commenting. I am looking forward to seeing West Virginia the next time my daughter travels there. I have seen photos of the area that she skis at during winter and it is beautiful in that season also. I really think that nothing compares with the brilliance of fall.Delete
Autumn resplendence - I love every brushstroke of color! Thanks for sharing Derek's gorgeous picture and your accompanying haiku.ReplyDelete
Ramona, Derek took some lovely photos of autumn in West Virginia. I am longing to see the trees change color but fo now I will rely on others to share their nature photos and dream away.Delete
The photo and the haikus are beautiful.ReplyDelete
Place of peace… a simple phrase, but it draws me in.ReplyDelete
I am glad that you too are in the moment when reading my haiku, Diane.Delete
Carol, the picture and haiku perfectly capture what is so special about this season.ReplyDelete
My son's photo was so beautiful in color that the haiku seemed to be the best poetry format to use. Resplendent is a word that I learned at an early age. My Mom had a Better Homes and Garden magazine with full pages of gorgeous flowers. In fact, one will be hung in a very large frame .Delete
We are waiting on autumn here in central Texas, the heat and humidity still a bit oppressive. I have sweaters at the ready when we finally dip into cooler temps, but I can enjoy your image and haiku in the meantime. Thanks for the nature break this morning, Carol!ReplyDelete
I hope nature has been good to you, Chris. The news talks about all the climate issues in Texas. Stay safe.ReplyDelete
