Leaf Whisperings

On my kitchen tiles
Through the open door,
A tiny leaf blew in
I bent down low
to say hello

In the park
A golden light was calling my name

Come outside!
Whispered the leaves

as they sighed and swayed over their bed of autumn jewels

Come and drink in the light and see our tantalizing colours

Let your eyes be filled with wonder

Breathe in the sky and our golden glory
to fill your heart with happiness
for a cold winter's day!

  5. Your use of language and mastery of the camera does fill my heart with happiness on a cold winter day! Thank you for this Sandra.

  6. Sheer beauty. And not what we're seeing here, where the leaves have been slow to turn and are falling before they develop their deepest autumn colours.

  7. Gorgeous autumn images and I love your words! Outdoors has been calling me, too!

  8. What a beautiful connection you have to nature, Sandra! The colours are really breathtaking and your words magical, thank you!

  9. An amazing introspection on the leaf. My favorite is the second to last - the light softly filtering through the pinnate.

  10. What a delightful senario, Sandra; you've put wonderful words in their mouths! Beautiful photos--I especially love the one you're using for your header.

  11. Stunning photography and lovely words, as ever. Awaiting a storm here tomorrow!

  17. Wow - such golden shots. How beautiful!

  18. These are such beautiful autumn photographs, Sandra.
    It looks like you are having a wonderful season.

  19. Beautiful leaf photos Sandra! I love the composition of the first shot, and love the focus on the yellow leaves through the green leaves on the shot you used for your blog banner!! And that blue and yellow in the last one is gorgeous!
    Hope you're having a great week!

  20. Gorgeously, seductive color in all these images, Sandra! I wish autumn could last for 6 months, or more! My favorite image is the first, for its simplicity, design, and warm vs cool color - lovely harmony. I also find the 6th image beguiling, as we get to peek into the world beyond - creative focus in this piece! Guess you liked it too, as it's your header :)
    Hope you're having a good week!

  21. I don't know which was more entertaining your beautiful photographs or your imaginary narration...Both are splendid....

  22. Beautiful post in every respect Sandra !

  23. This is the reason why I love autumn so much. Your beautiful photos are a testimony to this, the most wonderful season. Many thanks.
