Last week I responded to Photo Challenge “October” by taking a walk. This week I’m responding to Photo Challenge “A Photo Walk” by posting more photos of October! Sorry for the repetition, but a walk this time of year – especially with a camera – never gets old for me. We are still about two weeks away from peak fall color here, but we’re getting there!

Yesterday, I turned the calendar to a brand new page, then went for a walk to see October. Here in my part of the world, wildflowers are fading and trees have begun their magic transition from green to the spectacular shades of yellow, orange and red that can only be found in Autumn. I wish October, and all of the “Wow” it brings, lasted for more than 31 days!

Autumn’s Touch

DSC01533 (2)

There’s a stillness that is Autumn

on this crisp October morning.

Even geese are silent and

I wonder how far South they’ll choose to fly.

 

At the moment day awakens

Mother Nature gives a yawn, then

she flexes magic fingers

and throws colors at the hills and the sky.

 

From the trees on the horizon,

leaves become undone. They drift like

amber snowflakes to the ground.

How dazzling they become before they die!

 

This is my response to today’s one-word prompt: Believe

(because I believe it is His plan to give us the most colorful season right before He delivers the most stark one)
