New Landscapes: Fall In Dreams

New Landscapes: Fall In Dreams

it’s there
left Behind
in an autumn past
– your dreams

memories in decay
like falling leaves
with nothing
– to believe

    This one really stands out for me. Brilliant work. It feels otherworldly yet very present. Sort of like finding magic in life every day. I love it.

    • Ahh, Terry … mystical is it not, our relationship with life.

  5. I love the bokah that looks a bit like big fat flakes of the first snow drifting down. The image looks like a watercolor. Lovely.

    • Thanks Linda, I did not think of it as snowflakes and the coming of winter. But I definitely see it, feel it in the piece now.

      • It’s interesting how differently our minds and eyes function. I sort of figured you might be seeing it differently but that is just what jumped out at me. Perhaps because I so love snow flakes.

  6. Lush and sparkling, this. I loved the words too. Actually, this autumn has brought old memories with one special to me back to life. Dreams, if they are real, may not decay after all, but serve as sweet mulch for the future….

    • “Everything Changes Except A persistent Memory” … is the the title to one of my posts. And yes, dream and memories are persistent rather than decaying. At least some are. This post has a bittersweet feeling to it for me. As does most of my work. I shift back in forth between magic and lost. Always influenced by life’s ambiguity. But I am glad the post brought back pleasant moments for you.
