One beautiful and very big leaf
balances in the opening on a bench
We say hello to each other!
The golden larch graces the limpid pale blue sky
and the greens take on a hint of yellow
Soft dappled skies and furry edged leaves make us think it's spring again
November's jewels still shine
and blue skies appear in-between the grey days.
Beech nuts are falling from the trees
I collect some to put into a glass bowl at home.
The map of life contained in a single leaf
A rustling can be heard as the leaves start to float to the ground
and rejoice us with their luminous quality and varied colours
as well as their amazing textures.
In each tightly furled bud, spring slumbers, even though the cold winds
of November blow and snowflakes hover way on high.
A lone leaf on the branch
will soon join its sisters on the soft earth.
I'm grateful for the four seasons
which bring me joy at every step.
Soon, our activities will be often inside.
There's always plenty to do
books to read
crafts to enjoy
crochet to make
and mandalas to create.
Not forgetting photography!
Winter months are humming with creativity.
Do you find exciting and uplifting things to do in the winter months?
