Autumn Embrace

embracing Leaves


















Will you always hold me?
Wrap about me as the winds blow cold?
When I am no longer lovely and bright,
Will you still be there?
As my glorious colors fade
Will you, too?
Oh no, for life is more than a just season,
But rather the joy of one passing to another.
And as they do,
I shall hold you close
And finally, we will melt into the twilight~~
Dimming slowly,
But forever as
One.

Pax….

Beautiful photo, Anne, and I love the poem. The beauty of Fall is poetry in itself, don't you think?
I have a house full of guests for the weekend ~ Patrick's burial is tomorrow. I am thankful it's going to be a beautiful day.

Well after some clueless *geeking* this morning, I am finding some issues are getting resolved.

Lovely photo and poem, Anne.

Your blog is looking good, very clean. Glad you are getting the issues resolved, I would truly miss your blog were you to stop. I'd have to go back and read your archives or something!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

*sigh*
I reinstalled Firefox and that has solved some of the other issues.
I like the blog better and will work as I have time on the links, etc--getting them on pages. :)
Tweak, tweak....LOL!!!

XXOO~~♥

You have made me weep with such beautiful words. May God bless you sweet friend. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Good morning ALL!
(Anne crashed very early last evening and slept in late....ooops!)
A quick little story on the leaves:
I found them in the yard exactly as they are in the photo, and when I saw them, it reminded me of an elderly couple holding hands and walking---I just thought the positioning of them was so SWEET and having it happen randomly, well, I had to shoot it and preserve it.
And the poem, like everything else here, just dribbled out of the brain while studying the photo.
I am sure that is not an award winning photo, but I think it speaks volumns more than some of the award winners I have seen.
And no, Chickory, I did not cut the cord! LOL!!!! ;D
Hugs to you all!

XXOO~~♥

The photo is perfect for your beautiful poem - the leaves appear to be embracing, still full of love, in color, even as the edges curl and age, surrounded by the graying and fading light... lovely, really. xox K

Bella Sinclair said...

Awwwww, just....beautiful. Two leaves spooning. And the poem is touching. Each season is beautiful in its own right, isn't it.

I love watching elderly people walking hand in hand. Awwwwww

Gayle Pritchard said...

Love this, as it reminds me to "embrace" the change of seasons, and not just be waiting for spring!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

LOL Gayle--I'm waiting for snow and winter.....yep, sickko that I am!
And then I wait for Spring, and then I could skip Summer and go right back to Autumn! I just love it!
Good to *see* you; know you're as busy as a hopping flea!

XXOO~~♥
Anne
