September 2012

A definite feeling of Autumn in the air – not all the times by any means, but when it’s there, it’s there….like in the pine forest…

Cold lurks in the shade,
Dark pines crowd in around it.
Shadows growing long.



At last, some fine weather: dare we hope for an Indian Summer?

Ivy flowers splay
like green fireworks explosions.
The bees “ooh” and “ahh”.



Watching starlings turn and flow in unison, undersides flashing in contrast…

Fiery clouds of sparks
in a sudden shock of sun.
Starlings turn like smoke.



You have to make the absolute most of any good spells this so-called Summer, as any cat will tell you!

Under a full sun,
butterfly-fluttering bush.
Cat sprawls in its shade.
