Autumn Leaves

red oak leaves turning
here — memories traced, subtle
dark on light, veined film

      I am honored you like the post that much. Fall is a magnificent season. Thank you for your visit and kind comments–I look forward to them. I really am enjoying your blog. Was the math solution 125? 😉

      ottobiography,
      Welcome! Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I love the fall too. It’s my favorite season. Glad you liked the haiku. I’ve really enjoyed your stories. Humor is the best. Hope to see you again. 🙂

    Woah! Did you take that picture? I love it! So pretty! It’s snowing here. There are some pictures up on my blog. Thanks for the beautiful poem and pic!

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Tacy,
      Yep! I took the picture. I’ll check out your snow pics tomorrow. Spent all day at the high school at my son’s wrestling tournament, so I’m worn out. Go play in the snow! 🙂

    Oh yes, autumn colors. Colors to dance down the street to even with no music.

    I particularly like the “veined film”.

    Hope you are enjoying your day.

      Technobabe,
      That “veined film” is my favorite bit too. I had a great day today. My son’s wrestling team got second at a tournament and he won 4 of his 5 matches. I’m pooped now. 😉 Thanks for stopping by!

    How log have you been an artist? Because wow you’ve mastered it and this is so old, which means you mastered it long ago… I love this

      SeraphSili,
      So good to hear from you! Hope you are doing better. I have taken photos since I was in high school. Taken an autumn picture is an easy way to get a nice picture. The trees do all the work. Thank you for the complement. Glad you like it. 🙂
