almost time of year



living in the south . leaves take their time falling from the trees
this day as the north wind swirled among oaks and dogwood
pursuing the last lone few to let go of the season
I am happy for the "almost finished"
feel of this time of year

turning to go camera captures an intricate reflection
of bright white bird & branch with red berries & brick
noticed from the outside looking into a window of my home
I am happy for the "almost anything" reflected this time of year

I can feel the smile between the lines & images here, Elk... my own sentiments exactly. I am ready to tidy away tenderly 2010 and welcome a new year. :o) Happy Days, my friend ((HUGS))

Yes, we are seeing some of those same leaves in their "letting go." I like the way you see things...

deb said...

letting go slowly is the way I tend to be.

I love the concept of slowly letting go - so different from my rush into things habit

I love those last few glances of autumn that linger and linger. Happy reminders of what is still my favorite time of year.
