Falling down to Earth

until you saw me.

I love the haiku and such mellow colours.
On your earlier posts: I'm so, so pleased to hear good news. How are you going to celebrate?

A beautiful expression of a season which passes too quickly. I'm glad you didn't miss this leaf.

Gorgeous picture and haiku - I love fall!

Just caught up on your recent posts. I'm so sorry for the fear and sadness you had to go through recently, but so glad the end result was happier news. Those roads of pain are so hard to travel, but the looking back, and knowing that we made it - and we might have learned or grown because of it - that can often be the uexpected gift from it all. My old pastor used to say, "God doesn't waste pain on anyone." Believing this always helps me to see that there is a purpose in what I'm going through. Bless you!

How powerful three little lines are. I am relishing the red leaves around here, and it is true, they hold a certain loveliness to them once they have floated to the ground.

Beautiful picture....xoxox

I LOVE autumn leaves, probably because down here in FLA I don't see any.

What a lovely little haiku. It's interesting how one small little piece of poetry and can so completely affect me.

Thank you, D, as always.
