Spring is tender
Summer is passionate
Winter is elegant
Autumn contains all these qualities
and shows us how.
and the tenderness of new buds forming for the following spring.
Elegance in the park
and when the autumn colours reach for the sky
we hold our breath at the sheer audacity
We follow the paths of fallen leaves
not wanting to touch a single thing
I've never seen such a beautifully decorated bench at the foot of a beech tree
Catch a falling leaf and make a wish
it is said that they always come true
I'll let you know!
Here's one for you!
The sun plays such an important part
in illuminating those gorgeous leaves.
The Gingko leaves like golden fans upon the grass
lead us to some steps on their carpet of loveliness
which we climb to discover yet more beauty
The American oak leaves dance against a backdrop of sunlit beech.
The pond acts as a mirror
for a nearby tree
and the fountain is decorated with shimmering leaves from a tulip tree
floating on the surface of the water.
As I walk through the gates of the park
the fallen leaves seem to accompany me into the street
as if they know that I am unwilling to return back home.
Luckily for me,
this lovely park is in the city where I live
and I can visit it anytime I want.
It's only a short bus ride away.
