mid autumn along the fenceline

early on a morning laced with fog
a day
in which the world
appears spread along the fenceline







the fog burns off under
a cloudless afternoon sky


which softens
into the edges of evening

Linda Sue said...

Yummy colours! Delicious post! Along the fence line is a pretty place to hang out and I'll wager that the berries are not brighter on the other side.

So blue and red where you are.

We have lots of berries in DC this fall. The squirrels are getting fatter every day.

Nature paints so beautifully. All we have to do is notice.

jinksy - looking at it here i see christmastime - which i love but don't want to see just yet!!! steven

steven said...

willow - the berries are part of a vine that my neighbour dan the man planted! it moved along our fence - neither of us like fences but it was there when we arrived - so he planted the vine which has hidden the fence. it is so beautiful. we talk over top of it through the summertime. steven

rima - it's amazing that they showed up so richly. i look really hard for colour at this time of year because it is disappearing. steven

steven said...

kay thankyou - it was sheer luck to catch the scene at the right time of day with the right light and then they showed up so beautifully here. steven

steven said...

ellen - i love intensity in the same way as i love fragility and softness. steven

steven said...

linda sue - dan the man's berries are the same colour as mine! can i say that?! steven

steven said...

reya the squirrels are fat and slow here also and as i race down hills and see them i whistle or chuck to them so they know i'm coming - 'cause i have no motor and they can't hear me and i don't want to hurt them. steven

steven said...
