Autumn’s Kaleidoscope of Color

Flames of crimson, pomegranate, and persimmon,
ambered gold, chartreuse, and mossy greens

struggle to compete with the saturated sapphire sky
marbled with softly suspended cottony clouds.

The intensity of the beauty surrounding me
almost overwhelms my senses.

My eyes and my mind try to absorb it all
as if snapping photos in a continuous burst mode

trying to find a special place to store them
to remember on a dark, dreary day

when my heart can’t remember the bright warmth
or the splendorous display of Autumn’s kaleidoscope of color.

Cheers & Hugs,

    • the sky is sooooooooo blue in autumn. The colors this past week and the beautiful weather has really taken my breath away. It is raining today – and that’s okay -because I have a reel of this beauty in my mind πŸ™‚

  1. I believe that you must think poetically and see photographically! You possess the ability to think and see things that many others would miss. It is a great gift that you generously share with the fortunate followers of your blog. Beautiful photo and equally beautiful thoughts. Thank-you!

    • Oh Ellen – sometimes emotions are so hard to put into words … but it is so fun to try to find the right ones. I am so blessed to have wonderful friends like you who appreciate and encourage!!! You are the gift!


  2. We did have our heads in both the clouds and the brilliance of leaves changing into lovely colors.
    Your post included some amazing color names like pomegranate! You could make food item crayons, Jodi. πŸ‚πŸŒ»πŸ
