The Light here now

We had torrential rains, followed by two or three gusty days that swept everything clean, and now the light here is like honey, or like gems scattered carelessly in the street. Everything is hushed, and time itself seems to have paused to breathe.

For many more leaves, see go flying turtle.

that orangey red is the color I love and we have them in abundance during our New England Fall. It's over now, remnants of yellow remain. But it will come back again next year and that is what keeps me here...oh, yes, and my job!

Grey + leaves + light - what else does one need...?!

Neither red nor russet
nor nothing in between
the jeweled marbles
are mirrors of the obscene
spots
the decay
the fallen leaf
a symbol
of the rebirth
of death

Beautiful description, Susan. I've seen lots of leaves in the bloggysphere, but none set off by marbles.
