Watercolor sketches of Indiana Fall leaves. The leaves haven’t turned yet but will in just a few weeks. This is one thing I will miss once moved to Florida. You have really missed out on a gift from God if you’ve never walked through a woods with turning leaves, or even better yet walk into a woods and just sit on a stump and watch the beautiful dance of golden leaves falling. And even better yet, take your kids or grandchildren with you and sit quietly, and admire the beauty of the woods and the creatures that live there. It’s time we all slow down and be thankful for the beauty given to us, and not let it pass without notice.

Watching Leaves Fall

17 Oct

Twirl and spin
like a little girl
showcasing her finest Easter dress.

Float in an ever so deliberative way,
defying time and gravity’s pull,
on your way to the ground.

Dart like a missile
zeroing in
on its target.

Noiseless you fall
absorbed into an ocean of predecessors
filling the forest’s floor.

Your journey undetected
by all but the most watchful eye
taking care to notice your descent.

Fall Day

Crickets hum a quiet and consistent song, an unnoticed backdrop blanketing the world with their familiar sound.

Leaves rattle and turn as the wind blows strong then settles as if under the control of a conductor’s baton.

Squirrel standing on a rock like the leader of a secret forest kingdom undiscovered by those whose eyes overlook that which is easily missed in favor of that which is easily observed.

Sky of gray overshadowing the colors of the season, muted by its overwhelming potency.

Bird chirps, alone at first then welcoming a chorus of sky voices not in unison but whose harmonious message bespeaks the glory of this day.

Autumn Woods

I know we’re out of peak autumn leaf season, and I’ve been archiving this one for a while but I think it still fits the season.  This scene just entered my mind one day and this painting emerged.  I used to have a place in the Mohican Forest in Ohio that had large rocks like this that I would spend hours reading on.  I miss my little rock perch sometimes, it was a great place of solitude and peacefulness.
