October 21st-27th, 2013

Silvery light
buzzards soar

October 22nd, 2013
Chilly morning walk ~wild wine wrapped tree wears coat of generous
warming colors~ as if trying to keep the cold at bay
blue clear water is frigid~dogs barely dip~ today paws only
then out again~ racing along wildly~ trying to stay warm
we return back home with cold fingers but warm happy hearts

Morning moon's reflection
shivers on cold water
ripples spill across the creek

October 24th, 2013
Reaching  into a cloudless sky
flickering bonfire flames 
licking and tasting the cool blue

My day in a trio of Elje
walking funny
moving much slower
but not standing still
swirling madly
distorting the view
have to act quickly
no rest
tossed and turned
now headed back home

SWS Trio
Oh bliss
sinking into
my bed
Waking rested
savoring cool
autumn morning
Golden light
illuminates brilliantly
colored leaves

October 27th, 2013
October trip through the valley
plowed fields, changing leaves
harvested nut trees look defeated
their crop knocked down by noisy machines
in the distance huge plumes of smoke are rising
staining the pale blue autumn sky with a glaze of amber
rice fields are burning ~as are our eyes and throat
still the harvest goes on~we had hoped it was done
the paddies flooded by now~dabbled with squabbling fowl
newly arrived migrants from the north to please the eye
but all we see is the occasional Great White Egret
thoughtfully poking through newly harvested fields 
he too wants the water to return and with it tasty bites


  1. Great photos and wonderful words.

    1. Thank you, Elizabeth. Glad you enjoyed the visit.
