oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

Green and Golden and Gone

The leaves are going, ever so slowly, but they are going. I took this picture at the end of last week, and those golden leaves are brown now. What I see is a layering of leaves; some are gone, some have turned lovely shades of gold and orange, and some are still clinging to their green. What I think is that transition is best undertaken at your own pace.


The most minute transformation

is like a pebble

dropped into a still lake.

The ripples spread out endlessly.

  1. Our leaves are finally starting to turn, but it’s bittersweet since fall in Texas seems to pass so quickly. So true that “transition is best undertaken at your own pace.” If I had my way I would slow down fall and make it last twice as long. I just love having all the color around me, and the feeling of change in the air.

    • Me too – fall seems to be a rejuvenating kind of time. Maybe it’s just a feeling we get due to having a break in the heat that saps our energy so.

      Our falls here in Virginia are often short, as well. But this one is lasting and lasting. Which makes me happy!
