what does
high winds
and open
milkweed pods
when you sit
in silence.
on a cool,
crisp morning.
you hear
the leaf actually
break away from
it's branch.
where it sat proudly
all summer.
and you listen
as it hits the ground.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.

Great shot. A silent cup of coffee can have that effect. Lovely words, also.

Exquisite photos and sentiments too Robin. I've not heard the leaves touch down, but many, many acorns as the drop through the leaves and finally reach the earth. And then...silence. Until the next one drops.

enjoy this chilly autumn day.

@ anka- a silent cup of coffe is always welcomed.
@ laura-last year we had the walnuts doing that. this year, after soooooo many last year, we have no walnuts on the trees. the seasons are funny. it is a joy to experience them all.

Love those milkweed fairies! I still have all of tham that you sent me in a glass jar in my sewing room. One day, when Emma is older, I will take out a few and we'll blow them to new adventures. I hope she is as captivated with them as I was as a child. :)
Have a lovely weekend, Robin.
