Falling Leaves

"And every year there is a brief, startling moment
 when we pause in the middle
 of a long walk home and suddenly feel
 something invisible and weightless, 
touching our shoulders, sweeping down from the air; 
It is the autumn wind pressing against our bodies;
It is the changing light of fall falling on us."

~Edward Hirsch
Wild Gratitude

I went to my favorite park yesterday, and to my deep sadness, found that most of the leaves had already fallen. The trees that were in bloom just a couple weeks ago, with all colors and shapes you can imagine autumn leaves could be, now stood bare and cold. It was the result of the last storm that touched California, earlier this week. The rain was a good thing, it means the trees will be brighter and more beautiful then ever next year, and if things go as it looks like it will, next autumn will be amazing, so I am thinking and planning about that!

 I will continue to post the "Leaf Of The Day" through Monday, but here is the last autumn gallery on Ellipsis until next year.

 Autumn kisses winter hello on...
