Golden Leaves

Poem by David Wood

Autumn ushers in the golden blaze of leaf
When every tree delightfully looks their best,
And long shadows point with fingers brief
With the sun slung on a low horizon blest.

The pale days, now shorter as of late,
Mark the end of summer and the eve of winters fall.
Blackberries sprinkled in the hedge soon to make
A feast of a pie at the end of summer ball.

Night's cape draws its veil as we sit in the garden
Sipping cool drinks as we did in high summer.
Beginning to feel the chill wind begin to harden
Our sleeveless arms. This autumn in its slumber.

I love the fifth photo! 
That looks like a tranquil walking trail with the gorgeous fall leaves.

Lovely salute to Fall!
The Zen story & verse are perfect compliments for your series!
Looks like you didn't make the same mistake the king made, when he tried to impress the master...
Always a pleasure, my Friend

I'm not sure about that 😊 I always try to make my photos a bit different from the reality. And thanks for always looking to more than meets the eye

This is the other side of Japan. Form the urban buzz to the quiet countryside

Antonio, the colors are amazing! They really grab one's attention. And then there is photo #1, somehow the black and white makes one wonder why such "disarray" and "sadness" in a location where everything else seems to be perfectly wonderful. I like it, don't get me wrong. The black and white conveys a totally different message than the rest of the series and no doubt that was the message you were trying to "transmit" or is it?

Exactly. I posted the B&W image to counterbalance all the exuberance of the others. Loved your comment dear friend.
