TRIUMPH OF SPIRIT IN LOVE, NATURE & ART

A Slow Crescendo

 

With each gust of wind yellow finger-like walnut leaves shower down on our heads– like large, yellow snowflakes– a foretaste of snowfalls to come.  The sun’s shadows grow long as twilight nears.  Soon the white cloud “lions and tigers and bears” will arise in the black of night.  The summer has died, and in dying, gave birth to fall.  The comfortable rhythm of the changing season beats in our sometimes unhearing hearts.

  3. Hello, dear Ellen! x x
    Are beautiful post. All three parts go so well together. The notes of the music falling like the ‘yellow finger-like walnut leaves shower down on our heads’.

  8. A lovely collection, Ellen. The piano playing felt melancholy to me, which can be a beautiful timbre in its own right, and apropos to this autumn season. The leaves have been falling profusely here as well, along with the pine needles… It really gives me the sense of the living nature of the trees, to see them transform like this in harmony with the Earth…

    Peace
    Michael

    • Thank you, Michael, for stopping by. Honored that you got something out of my piece.  I just loved your poem about hearing love in the air in Autumn.  The season of death is filled with love, life.
